Very cool that you got it to work but I am just not a fan of TPMS. Disabled it on my 65, don't have it on my E, and really indifferent to it on my G.

Yeah...

The 98 octane you are reading about is the RON number, used in Europe. It is roughly equivalent to 91 octane by US standards.

You are fine running 91 octane, but 93 is preferred.
