Hi all,
I am going to be driving the Tribeca 7000kms across Australia next month and am not sure of the availability of 'premium' unleaded petrol at all of the service stations we will go past. In anyone's opinion, is it safe to run the car on the occaisonal tank of normal unleaded fuel if the petrol station does not sell 'premium'? Shpuld I be looking for some sort of octane booster or additive to go in the tank if I have no choice but to fill it up with standard unleadead?

I have always run the car on premium, never put standard unleaded in it at all....

Appreciate any advice!

cheers
Matt.

You'll be fine running lower grades of fuel. We've done it on our 07 with no issues except slower performance from a dead stop. If you're mixing premium with lower grades back and forth, you probably will feel no difference.
