I recently relocated from the USA and I shipped my RX to the USA. The car is obviously USA specifications. The manufacturer recommended fuel with Octane rating 87.
However in the UAE the octane ratings are
Super (98), for low compression engines, Special (95) for medium compression engines and E-Plus (91) for high compression engines.
Please suggestions about the kind of fuel that I can use?
Thanks

That rule is both outdated and incorrect. You need higher octane ratings for higher compression ratio not the other way around. But that's for cars from more than 10 years ago. Modern engines are advanced enough to use lower octane ratings even with very high compression (A25A-FXS has 14.0:1 compression ratio but uses 87AKI/91RON).

USA uses AKI rating instead of RON. 87AKI = 91RON, 89AKI = 93RON, 91AKI = 95RON, 93AKI = 97RON. Use whatever "recommended rating" says on the fuel door.
