Wow that's it? Seems it would require 91 Oct at least seeing as the older b16 call for 91, must be lower compression or running less timing than an average turbo d16 or b series.

Qutoed by Honda at- http://owners.honda.com/search?q=top+tier;
Fuel Information Use of unleaded gasoline of 87 octane or higher is recommended. • Honda recommends TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline where available. • Do NOT use gasoline containing more than 15% ethanol.

In Central New Jersey, my local BP uses 10% ethanol regular gas with Invigorate, 87 octane Top Tier rated.

A full list of Top Tier retailers is available at; http://www.toptiergas.com/licensedbrands/

2021 Civic Hatchback Sport. Dealer said it takes 87 Octane. The manual says that if you have 20 inch tires to use 91 octane. I am very confused. Called Honda help line and they told me to follow the manual. Can any one deconfuse me? Thanks
