Where in the US is the bigist part if it is a small town it would be harder but if you go to a bigger city its easy. It also depends if you want to go through the VW dealer or a indapendent shop.

You're right most stations have a wider selection than we get, ranging from 91 upto 99 RON

I think when you see the cost to ship the car to Florida and cover all the import paperwok and costs you'll quicly realise it's not really financially viable

Much better options available with the steering wheel on the right side for less money and more suited to US driving style.Plenty of V8s around :)

They measure petrol in the US in a different format

The Numbers displayed are Pump Octane Numbers, which is the average between RON and MON

Its a more accurate way of displaying fuel quality

For instance 97RON in the UK is around 93 in the US

Would a UK spec actually be road legal in the US? They're very strict on imports these days
