Should I change back to 91 from 95?

Have you thought to look at the owners manual or possibly the inside of the fuel cap?

Tyre pressures, just look at the sticker on the drivers door jamb, fuel, sticker on the fuel filler flap....🤗

The title suggests he WAS using 91 and now uses 95.

 

Which given the article relates to lowering not increasing the octane.

 

Makes no sense.

 

Perhaps he (OP) might consider stating exactly what his concern is, as suggested.

Hi Transam
If I answer you I answer all I used 91 for years.
As the price diff was small I tried 95 gasohol.
It seemed to have a bit more power But given the NYT article and answers here I wonder if it was the placebo effect.
I started looking up specs online......no manual handy......but given the variety of names this model can have and also reading octane ratings can be different in different countries and people speaking of 87 on Suzuki forums I thought I’d present the article locally for comment.
Kinda interested why there’s such a saving in the US but just a baht here.......do they use gasohol?
BTW yesterday checked car no octane rating on door rim but discovered that someone’s put a Nissan fuel cap on my Suzuki Vitara with nothing written.
If we think there’s no difference in power I’ll change back and buy myself a treat now and again.

Higher rated fuels are kinder to your car as they will have cleaning materials you won't get in lower octane fuels. There are debates raging all over the internet about whether there's anything in it.

 

When I had a Nissan GTR they stated in writing that if they found a lower octane fuel in it, it would void all warranties !! Nissan aren't in the business of selling petrol so maybe there is !

Now we know the ride here my 2 bahts worth.

 

All Suzuki vehicles sold in SA since 1985 are good for unleaded fuel - 
Vitara + Grand Vitara - 90 RON / octane or higher
Current Grand Vitara 2 + Jimmy - 90 RON / octane or higher.
