I believe the gold one here is 95 octane and we have a new one that might be 98? but again not sure so just double checking... read the thread on fuel from the states but not sure how that translates to Kuwait

our 95 is actually 93 and 98 is 95... a friend of mine told me its some different way of measuring it.. not sure on exact details but basically our 95 = US 93 and our 98 = US 95

Its not that our petrol isnt up to par.. just that it has misleading numbers...

I use our 98/95 US just to keep in habit so when i mod/tune the car i dont forget one day and put in the 95/93 ... higher octane = less chance of somethin going wrong.


About your car.. I suspect one of the following:

1) You have a leak

2) You are sitting in neutral revving it all day and not moving; thus using up all the petrol (dont blame you.. the car sounds sexy)

3) You forgot to fill the petrol tank after you got the car (dealer only gives you less than half a tank )


My guess is number 3...

Lool
1) hope not:/
2) so with u on that one!
3) Possible cuz the dealer told me it was half full but it looked like it was all full or maybe im just delusional?

btw thanx for ur patience and answers! so if u dont mind one more? if i want to switch to the 95/98 but im pretty sure it has 93/95 in it i need to let it get as empty as possible before switching sa7? I know im a pain but thats my baby and i need to take care of her the best way possible!

ahh I thought it would be number 3.. you are a girl after all so I guess you can be excused

I dont no specifics but ide wait for it to get down to almost 0 then fill her up with the good stuff and keep doing that.

just dont go imagining its full again when its empty and have the car stop in the middle of teh road

ah u now girls dunno anythin about the technicalities of cars... except maybe checking mirrors for makup .. andjusting chair and not putting on a seatbelt so you dont wrinkle your clothes... how to operate the boot to put all the shopping in.. etc :P (im only saying this cuz am in UAE and you cant run me over when im walkin down the street :P)

And you would have to rev her for hours to empty a tank.. basically the same amount of time you would need if you were drivinga round...

A question for you guys......How much is gasoline over there? (Average price for US gallon in US dollars)

We're averaging about $2.80 for 87 Oct. and about $3.05 for 91/92 Oct.


Just curious what the prices are in Kuwait??

ok we are at around USD1.72/gallon for 93octane (our 95) and USD1.82/gallon for 95octane (our 98)

i hope you are also quoting as per gallon or your paying a lot!!

these are UAE prices.. in Saudi Arabia its MUCH!!!! cheaper... maybe even up to half the price..

No Clue? Thats how cheap it is.... but to give u an idea a chevy tahoe fills up with 93 octane for less than 20 bucks

Suwaidi like I mentioned in another thread... my first car was a '99 Z28 Im definitely not ur average khaleeji girl but ill admit im no car expert either just a camaro junkie!

20 bucks for a tahoe... looks like UAE is paying the highest gas prices in the gulf

my camaro full with 95(US) is arouuund 27 USD or 100AED

you just like the power well as long as its not a mustang... your ok in my books... you know how to differentiate between the good and the bad

You can use gold (95) but ultra (98) will be better. They're all cheap (90 fils/litre! Thats like 30 cents/litre for the ultra) so who cares! Go for the Ultra!!

Hi mate, the only Octane Rating of Gasoline we use here in Kuwait is 95RON(Super) and 98RON(Super Ultra).

Gasoline (Mogas) Prices:
95RON = 0.060 fils per litre
98RON = 0.065 fils per litre

Conversion:

Kuwait Dinars United States Dollars
0.060 KWD = 0.207075 USD
0.065 KWD = 0.224486 USD

Hope that helps.
