regular will work, but since its a turbo, i'd say premium


def prem


The 1998 Volvo S70 T5 Requires 91 Octane. If 91 Is not available use 93. 89 Will work, but you will get poor mileage and have a lack of power. DO NOT run anything lower than 89.


No, regular is not advised for the T5. The T5 has a high compression engine with a high compression turbocharger.
