Is Premium Gas worth the Money?
Now that we're all used to higher gas prices, are you wondering if you should be putting Premium gasoline in your gas tank? Is it better? Will it give you better performance, or is it just money down the drain?
Well, believe it or not, the definitive truth is that you should follow your manufacturer's recommendation for the type of fuel you put in your tank. All you have to do is check your owner's manual, and sometimes it even says in your gas tank door or gas cap. Always stick with what your manufacturer recommends, unless you are on advise from your mechanic to use a higher grade of gasoline in order to avoid a problem like engine knocking.
Most cars run on good old Regular Unleaded. And as it turns out, High-Octane gas isn't better gas, nor does it do anything special for your car like provide more power. Stick to what your manufacturer says. If however, you've lost your manual or don't see the information around the gas cap, don't fret. We can look up the recommended fuel type for you!
