What fuel grade should I run my Toyota Celica on?

I have a 1992 generation 5 Celica Convertible imported from Japan many years ago. I notice that when driving up an incline it seems to 'pink'. I have not heard this before from an injected engine. Which fuel grade should this car run on?

Although these Celicas were fine running on UK fuel, Japan used 100 RON at the time. If it doesn't specify a fuel grade in the car's handbook, try running it on a couple of tanks of premium and see if it helps.

Safe, enjoyable handling and good engines. GT-Four is a rapid point-to-point car. A front-drive version is the sensible buy.
