Default what kind of fuel ?

hello!

i am the happy owner of a used 2010 XC60 T6 AWD in Canada... but this car drinks soooo much!!!

what fuel is best suited for this car ? I used "supreme" (more expensive than regular) but i read that I can use regular gas for this model ?

would you have any advice ?

thanks!

What does the owners manual recommend? Is the mileage within normal range for that model?

hello,

the manual recommend octane 87 or 91, mileage is 22,000 miles for a 2010 model which is pretty low... but I still find consumption very high in city, I think 240 km on a 70 L tank...

The car is tested wiht 91 octane, so all performance numbers (power and mileage) are based on 91 octane. You can run 87 octane, no damage will occur.

thanks,

the mileage is actually horrible, I think I can do 260km in city, I have done my first 1/4 tank, and only drove 60km in city. I try to use less the turbo but sounds crazy.
