You can use premium, but if the manufacturer doesn't specify that it's required and the engine has no knock, why bother?

http://www.hyundaisonatamanual.com/sonata-3-fuel_requirements.html Pasted from owners manual: Introduction / Fuel requirements Your new vehicle is designed to use only unleaded fuel having a pump octane number ((R+M)/2) of 87 (Research Octane Number 91) or higher. Other words regular 87 is fine but they used premium 91 during engine testing
