not exactly.. malaysia petrol quality is lower.. if your car stock.. then 91 or 95 should be ok.. my friend's swift turbo.. pump 97 also got problem.. engine misfiring and cannot run properly.. in the end had to flush and pump with vpower then ok..

if you going to track.. bring some octane booster to increase the fuel quality.. otherwise 91/95 should be ok..

u go in to pump petrol often? i thought now they got new law say nearby petrol station more expensive or cannot pump?

don't see a reason why it would be harmful.. unless your car is highly tuned and the tuner told u to use ONLY 97.. otherwise it's ok..

anyway, modern cars have modern ECUs.. if it detects misfiring or pinging, the ECU will retard timing and ignition to prevent damage to the engine.. the only thing you might feel on your end is the car has less power.. that's all..
