If you are on the standard map, it will run fine on 95 ron.

You might even be better off with this than buying some of the premium fuels. If the fuel is not bought enough, it will degrade in storage at the petrol station before it is re-filled with new fresh stuff. I was advised that Esso 97 was likely going to be worse than 95 for this reason. Even a stage 1 car will run on 95 but you would be ill advised to drive it hard.

So you think just normal 95 will be fine? Can I drive hard with 95 and no remap?

Of course you can.

Renault sell the car with a standard map that has ample tolerance for standard 95 ron fuel with a suitable safety margin. The car's handbook says it is fine to run on 95 ron or better.
