Default Fake Premium Gas???

i topped off my tank with Shell V-Power on Sunday. It's a kinda big one in the block of shady neighborhood. Damn... I did WOT with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th on uphill. I was expecting at least 14 PSI (i'm on AP Stage 1), BUT all I could hit was around 12 PSI!!!! ***??? I feel like i got cheated... I never heard engine ping before, so i'm not sure wheather my engine is detonating or not...

I'm going to reset ECU tomorrow morning to test it out one more time. Hope that it'll be BETTER.

That's strange. I'm mostly stock and hit 14 psi. Bad gas maybe? A sheetz by my house accidentally put diesel in the 91 octane tanks and screwed a bunch of people over (only about 2 months ago). One of my dad's friends had just gotten a new outback and the put some sheetz diesel in there (unknowingly of course) and the dealership said it wouldn't hurt anything!! What a crock. I'm sure you didn't get diesel, but maybe some bad gas or something.

Try using Chevron - my dealer put in 87 (!!) gas when they delivered the car to me, it would hesitate like a mofo, I was pissed.
