Mein Auto: X3

Is anyone using regular gasoline for your X3? I read the owner's manual , it said premium Gasoline AKi 91 is higly recommended. However, you may also use gasoline with a lower AKI rating, the minimum AKi rating is 87.

I am using premium gas now, but with gas price keep raising, if I could use regular, it will save me about $30 a month. Any advises? Mine is 3 year leased X3.

my turn, my turn !!!!
Do GPS equipped models experience more drag as a result of the sat signals that are collected by the shark fin antenna? Can I remedy this by turning on the sat nav only when I really really need it????
