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.

I have a Volvo2002S802.9 which type of gas is preferred unleaded which number ?
