Read your manual, if it calls for regular unleaded, use regular unleaded, if it wants premium, use premium. If its a flex-fuel, then it doesn't matter.

Run a "Top Tier" gasoline at the octane rating recommended by the manufacturer. Do a Google search for "Top Tier Gasoline".

Putting a higher octane gasoline in the vehicle than what the owner's manual calls for won't hurt anything. Higher octane burns hotter and cleaner than regular. But it won't hurt the engine at all. So if you're concerned that something may be damaged, don't be. You're fine. HTH. -Jim

Hi Jim, you are absolutely correct....it won't hurt anything in your engine.... just your wallet.... Fuel is the most expensive thing people put in their vehicles... Over time this really adds up... If it doesn't​ require premium, there's no reason to use it and you nor the car will ever know the difference. There's no real performance bonus from the higher grade. Again, lost money...
