Look in the owners manual. As long as it isnt a turbo (it's not) if they recomned it it means you might find less performance with regular. If it is required (ie on a turbo) you must use premium.

With the 3.6 and all Subaru 6 cylinders, they run a higher compression ratio then the 4 cylinders so they recommend running premium gasoline.


When its going to be $5 different at the pump total for fill up, why risk it on a new car?
