The section quoted from the manual is one of two examples of the text you may find inside the fuel flap. The manual also indicates that the required fuel grade in indicated on the fuel flap. For the 1.0l 115PS this is Super 95. This is also confirmed in the Technical Section of the manual. So it does not make sense to pay extra for a fuel that the engine has not been designed for. Using different fuel suppliers will however give different detergents and additives which may benefit the engine.

I agree with your statement on page 311, but the paragraph before the one quoted states that "at least" 91 octane should be used and that unleaded 95 octane plus is" recommended" so the question is which one applies and for that a reference to the detailed Technical Data, page 349, for the 1.0 l 115Ps engine clearly states Super 95. Clearly this the technical recommendation of SEAT for that engine. If you look further none of the petrol engines in the Technical Data section require Super 98.
