Question Reg fuel

What changes do you suggest for a 2006 2.4 Turbo to run on reg fuel?

If is a GT, you can't use regular. If is turbo light you can use it with no problem.

If it's a GT, or high-output turbo, the only change we could suggest would be to buy a PT without a turbo. The PT will run on regular, but good luck keeping it together over the long haul. You'll experience lots of engine issues after running on reg fuel for a while....

Cool Re: Reg fuel

Look inside the fuel cover.
If it says"Premium Fuel Only"....do so!

If you're going to run regular gas in your turbo, first you need to make sure you can. The instructions for insuring proper fuel usage are here:



I've not used these instructions myself, because I thought I had to use super only, so let us know how it goes...
