Premium.

Only use premium other wise you could cause detonation in the cylinders. Causing damage to your motor.

yes u can use normal gas, but its recommended u use premium as it will not cause engine knocks and other problems, ive heard people using normal though ive never tried it...

Allows 91-98 RON octane fuel and has sensors. (I use premium anyway..)

I've accidentally put regular (87 octane) in my car and it ran fine, but I would stick with premium just in case.
