Yeah, and even worst is the fact that those when wet signs are followed up with the end of speed zone signs, and they can get mixed up really easy with the no speed limit signs on the Autobuhns.

Lemme guess, it all becomes second nature after driving it for a while?

Yeah... except I don't drive in Germany too much.  Still hate the Ausfarts on the Autobuhn, they will throw you off really quick, because they list like 5 places per exit, and they change as you get closer...  But, it's not too bad to drive through, and when you have a rental, well... the fun doesn't stop.

If I can pull it off, I'm soo bringing my rally car next year, screw the $3k CAD hit to my wallet each way ^_^  There's 94/100 octane fuel out there, right?  (aka ultra premium)

Yeah, 95/98 is about the only things you will find, unless you REALLY look around.  I think in Germany it is somewhere around 1.40-1.50/litre.  But, I could be wrong.

Grrf, that would mean I'd have to tone things down or buy actual race fuel, since the engine's designed to run off of 94/100 octane fuel (how else does one expect to get 400whp out of a 1.6L engine? ^_^).  They sell VP Racing fuels out there, aka C3 and the like race fuels?

Ah, okay *breathes a sigh of relief*  Race fuel starts at $2 per litre here, so I don't even want to know how expensive it would be out there...  (and booo, 87/regular (no idea what european equivalent is) is now 93.5c per litre, which means my 94/100 octane is like.. $1.15 per litre, but I can't complain because it's like twice that in europe (I've heard it's something outrageous like 98 pence a litre in london atm))

Hmmm, so yeah, about twice as much when you factor in the conversion from CAD->EUR. And WTF, 87 octane is anywhere from 84.9 to 99.9 in my city. o_O

Benzin = 91 octane

Super = 95  octane

Super Plus = 98 octane


so, 91 is the lowest you can get

*facepaws* Oh yeah, I keep forgetting that North America and Europe use different measurings for octane rating...  Tis (RON+MON)/2 here, and straight RON out there...  87=91=Regular, 89=94=RegularPlus (or just Plus), 92=98=Premium, and 94=100=SuperPremium (or UltraPremium)
