Hi there,
The Mondeo is listed as using 91. I can't see the fuel specs for an import 2ltr Variant model, but the GTi 2ltr lists 98 octane.

Thank you. Other than price would using 95 do any harm to the motor.
Thanks

If the car is designed for 91, using 95 won't harm the engine.
Most turbo engines can run on a minimum of 95 octane fuel- but definitely not 91 in a turbo engine unless the manufacturer specifies. If in doubt you may need to ask a VW agent for confirmation.
