Hi I have just purchased a 2008 Subaru Exiga GT (import) - I was told by the dealer to run this only on 95 or 98 because of the Turbo. Can you please confirm this is correct - and if so - which one is better! Many thanks!

Hi there,
There is no information available for most imports, generally 95 is find for a turbo as a minimum but not all service stations have 95 octane so sometimes 98 will be required. The NZ new Legacy GT turbo of the same year is listed as using 95 octane fuel.

I can't see any fuel specs for the Dualis, but the similar vehicle Qashqai lists 91 octane fuel from 2008. I have no specs for 2007 vehicles.
