The onboard ingition and fuel control systems will adapt just fine to running on 87 octane. After more than 33 years with a Volvo dealer I have never ever had any problems of cars running 87 Octane except the 1992 960. That changed as the engine control modules became more sofisticated

It should say in the owners manual or inside the fuel door what the minimum octane rating is. On this vehicle, I believe the minimum octane is 91

I have volvo s40 2002 and i don't know how put


You turn the disc button I think it is, to get the numbers up you want, then push in to confirm the number you have and then bingo should be on. If you do not have the code give volvo service dept a quick call with your reg and they will fix you up with the code.

I have just bought my 8th Volvo, I love the car and it drives like a dream as usual but on buying the 2001 S40 I bought a sat nav, not realising charging it would be a problem with no 12 V Socket in the...


Just buy a cigarette lighter socket and install it yourself.
Supply it from the vehicle +12V accessory power; don't forget to also connect 0V (ground) to the socket metal frame.
Accessory power is normaly used on the vehicle to power heater fans, radios etc.
