Nothing should happen to your engine. It just won't have the bit of performance you are use to. You can add some octane booster to it and that should help. Pretty much just fill up on the usual gas next time around.

in cases like these cars have been known to explode...so i think ur best bet is to sell it to me for 500 bux and get it off ur hands!

Nothing will happen, you guys are mean. You will notice on the Big twin cam VTEC's, that they dont run as welll with reg. But your engine is fine. Octane boost will give you your power back for this tank, but it wont hurt anything if you dont.

You may notice some pre-ignition with the lower octane gas. This would only happen if your engine's compression ratio was high enough, though. I have no clue what a JDM GSR's compression ratio is and what the recommended grade of fule is for it.

C. R. = 10.6:1; recommended fuel = premium.

Just drive your car around easy until you fill up. Don't go hitting redline or anything.

Your engine is equipped with a knock sensor which will retard the ignition if it detects knocking. (That is if knock is hooked up)......

Either way, you'll be fine, just don't push the car.

Just dont' rev it out. Take it easy and dump some octane boost in. You have a knock sensor so you dont' have to worry too much.
