I highly doubt it, I made that mistake in my Nissan Maxima and it spark knocked something terrible till I could get premium in it. On a car that nice, don't risk running regular.

if the car says premium fuel only then run premium fuel. if you cant afford the gas the car needs then you cant afford the car.

Infinity recommends high octane fuels but you can use "Regular". If you plan to race i would use high octane...

I just purchased a 2011 G37, and the dealer told me to use regular gas unless I planned on red lining the engine and testing its performance. I don't drive like a race car driver, so I think I'll use regular.

Modern cars have knock sensors. Using regular in a high compression engine can cause knock. The sensors should detect it and automatically compensate by retarding the spark timing. Thus, car should run fine with slightly reduced performance and mileage

I use 93 and i red line all the time daily driving the cars to fun not to rearwheel drive G37 is a great car


dont do it , the engine is a 11:1 normal cars are 9:1 this means pre ignition is gonna be an issue

The engine in this car operates at an 11:1 compression ratio normal cars run on a 9:1 compression ratio , despite dual nock sensors the pre ignition will still cause problems , the nock sensors may not be able to adjust the advance enough to compensate . its like running gas in a diesel engine , a diesel runs on a 19:1 compression ratio
