Premium vs regular unleaded on Volvo XC70

Asked by Anil Dhingra

Is regular unleaded ok for my 2007 Volvo XC 70, and are there any benefits from using 95 or 98-octane?

The recommended fuel for the XC70 is 95-octane, which is Premium unleaded. You could use regular unleaded, but you won't get the same economy or performance from it. You could improve your economy by stepping up to 98-octane, but you have to weigh up the benefits against the extra cost of the fuel to determine if the higher quality fuel is worth it.
