I think you misunderstood Hanna09, not "High Endurance" but rather "High Compression" and indeed it is and the owners manual does say Premium Fuel 91 Octane required for the 3.0L V6


Also, don't buy gas from convenience stores or independent retailers. Very important, the cheap gas is, well cheap gas. It does not have the detergents the Lexus needs. For a list of approved Lexus fuel see
