Default Gas question about 2001 Jetta 1.8t

Does this car require Premium fuel? Or will regular be fine?

Default RE: Gas question about 2001 Jetta 1.8t

I use the high octane one, premium or whatever the highest is, cause of the chip. I think low octane sucks, but depending on which gas you use will really make a difference. If you're using the crappy stuff make sure to use fuel injector cleaner, too.
