what kind of gas to use for a 2009 Turbo VW EOS


Asked by Jun 13, 2018 at 12:55 PM about the 2009 Volkswagen Eos Lux

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just purchased an used 2009 VW EOS turbo.  It did not come with a manual.
The salesperson said to use premium gas only since it is a turbo or I will have problems down the road with the engine.  It does not say on the dash premium gas only.  Looking for answers to see what I should be using.  Thanks
