    stever, I don't know of a high-compression turbo setup that runs on regular gas. Not saying they couldn't but GM would really have to pull a rabbit out of the hat for regular gas pushing these numbers out of this displacement. Of course if you assume about 12,000 miles use, 20 mpg, and a differential of 25 cents/gallon between regular and premium gas, you're talking about $150/year in gas which is a rounding error on a $70k car.

    If premium fuel requirements put you out of the market for a Caddy, you shouldn't be shopping for a Caddy.

    You should be able see and click on my "spoiler" ellipses in my post (if it doesn't open, try this link). It's a long running gag around the Forums here, kind of like "that'll buff right out" (although there are indeed quite a few of us for whom "premium required" is an eyebrow raiser, if not a deal breaker).

    More important to me is stuff like adaptive cruise, power ports, USB ports and the like.

    And I will pay more up front for things like printers that use toner instead of ink, smaller wheels on my cars, or solar panels (still shopping those), all to decrease my on-going costs of consumables.

    Given Edmunds' reluctance to put premium in turbo cars in the past, I kinda get where Stever is going with his comment. Also, is that horsepower rating achievable with the 91 octane swill we get on the West coast?

    Pleeeeze ... if octane is a hang-up buy a Prius. Shell Premium V-Power 93 AKI/99 RON. Go baby, go.
