I believe standard 95 Ron unleaded. Could go super/97 but don't think there is a major benefit

i just use std 95 ron in mine, (company frown on ultimate / 99 ron fuel as have fuel card)


I just avoid supermarket fuel where possible as I found in y i20 it was fine for the odd fill up but prolonged (10 or mor fillups) mpg began to drop and took 10 or more branded fuel fill ups to recover

The engine has been developed to run at the leanest efficiency so the basic 95 ron unleaded is the most appropriate and cost effective fuel.

Freaking Europeans, always have to have a different systems for things that we changed over here in the US. Get It Together and Dump The Metric System!

....oh, wait, he said Petrol. I guess he did want the European standard. Woops, sorry folks, sometimes my 'Murica comes out.

Standard gasoline (87 octane using the PON or (R+M)/2 standard) should fuel this car juuuuuust fine based on everything I'm reading.

Alrighty, that was the answer I was looking for. I kept reading RON and I was wondering what in the world was going on. I was going to presume it was 95 octane and I thought that was pretty high lmao

After searching around the internet (I haven't yet gone to refill my tank, but I was curious about it too), 87 Octane appears to be the minimum. I just went outside to check my car and honestly I'm kind of surprised that it doesn't tell you what Octane rating you should use when you open the fuel door. I can't think of any other car I've driven previously that didn't have that info readily available.

Higher octane really just helps keep the fuel from detonating before it's ready in a high compression engine. The ioniq is a relatively low compression engine so a low octane fuel is just fine. A high octane won't benefit you at all. I agree with Bluecar1 that better quality fuel can be a benefit though.
