I have a '06 GTI which, of course, takes premium gas. Is it ever ok to
add the less expensive gas? I imagine it might hurt the engine?

It will not hurt anything mechanical; your engine knows how to effectivly "de-tune" itself to accomodate the lower detonation resistance of the lower grade of gasoline. The only things you'll "hurt" are the acceleration and fuel economy of your car and your wallet (due to the lower fuel economy).
