Correct octane level

Just bought a 2019 RT Limited. Interested to know which fuel octane level to use - RON 93, 95, or 98?

May not find anybody here who is familiar with the RON rating system but the right answer is to use what it recommends in your owners manual and/or is listed on the fuel cap.

If 98 is a commonly available option at your pumps, my guess is that is the right one.

I don't think that helps at all.
Explain please.

The recommendation is to use "premium" fuel with a higher octane rating than "regular".
The numbering system used to label that isn't important.
