It's just as reliable, mileage should be similar, possibly a hair less
depending on how you drive it, it's certainly less powerful than the 20v,
but I haven't heard any specific problems. Regular gas will work on either
engine, though the mileage will be somewhat better with mid grade which may
offset the extra cost, premium is a waste on either.
