Can someone tell me what this translates into as far as performance or engine life?
When I bought my Boxster, most gas stations in my area had 91 and 92 octane.

I called up Porsche of America and they said I can use a minimum of 91 octane. I lose about 0.2HP for using it over 93 octane, but who cares?

It makes no difference in reliability or gas mileage. Those are just myths.
