    I have 2010 1.8 Prius as well.
    Whenever I fill the tank I always get 10 litres Hi-Octane and rest Regular. And I always get fuel from Caltex.

    Sir I checked. 95 ron is not even available in Japan also.
    Check the link. They gave full table. Octane rating - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    95ron is available in NewZeland, Australia, Indonesia, Germany & Argentina.
    Perhaps the model of car you are having, were actually produced to export N.Z, Aust. Or some other country.

    However I understand that ideally if the car is required 95ron then it need to be fed with same.
    But if 95ron is not available, then 92 will be OK which is available in Pak. Because no other option. Now fuel prices are expected to decrease further, so I hope it will be OK for a prius owner to run vehicle on hi-octane having 92ron.

    RON value of 87 is present in Pakistan as Super.

    RON 91 is called Hi octane in Pakistan. This is regular fuel in other countries.

    Mixing of RON 87(Super) and 10 litres of RON 91(Hi octane) doesnt make any difference on engine condition or mileage. Just a psychological effect. its the engine oil which makes a difference on engine condition and mileage. use a good engine oil.

    If your pocket affords it, use 100% Hi octane if you want to see difference.

    In Australia, its RON 91, 95 and 98.
