Question type: General

3 Answers

no most run fine on regular gas.


Unless indicated otherwise by your manual, you should be fine using 87 or 89. If performance problems and engine knock result, switch to premium.

I called Toyota with the same question. They said that the original owners manual says 87 or higher. I know I personally can't afford premium gas for the distance I drive.
