Thumbs up Fuel types for BA

Does anyone know what types of fuel the new BA range uses?

ie. regular or premium unleaded?

I'm assuming the XT uses regular unleaded and I'm pretty sure the 260 uses Premium to produce those sorts of kilowatts but I'm not sure about the remaining engines.

Cheers

I seriously doubt Ford would have the base model run on premium. Falcon will probably be the last car to do that.

Interesting that fuel efficiency is 'officially' not lost, too.

I think it's a given the turbo will need premium. On the off chance that it doesn't, I think most owners will use premium anyway.

Fuel

All motors except Boss run on regular unleaded. The quoted figures for the turbo are based on premium, but it is able to run on regular.

Our Volvo C70 convertible is only suitable for regular unleaded. You would think with it being European, and Turbo-charged that it would be for premium. So the XR6 Turbo wont necessarily benefit from premium unless Ford tune it that way.

yes lets hope, was it just a problem with the 3.9 motor, or do all falcons suffer from ****ed head gaskets. our el was fine and it had ended up doing something like 280,000 kms. and was serviced every 10k . No head gaskets probs, just A/c pump and Electric coil.
