I have just bought a 1985 2lt mitsubishi l200 sport ute,unsure which octane rating to use

Minimum recommended is 91.

Both fuels are unleaded so you have no choice, regarding lead fuels.

So what will it matter!

It's more of a performance issue.

Who mentioned anything about lead! There is more than 2 different types/octane/blend of fuel available too;)

Whats the compression ratio!

campmother2002, May 26, 10:35am
Don't know, have got no information at all!

I have a '97, found it runs best on 95.

cp2011, May 26, 11:16pm
yes ive found they run best on the highter octane stuff

The old g63b in those run fine on 91. They have a bad habit of having stuffed vac advance units on the distributor if you are having problems.I don't believe you will notice any difference running it on a higher octane fuel.

91 will be fine

E10 Is great if your in an area that can get it. As long as you maintain it and run 95 in it once every 6 months or so it will go like a charm. Was using it the entire time I was in Brisbane. Saved so much money and really didnt cause that much wear and tear either
