premium, super or even ethy; have an OCTANE number this most explosive of petrochemical compounds in various concentrations typically 87 is regular 90 is mid-grade and 92 is premium w/techroline (another horrible petrochemical product that does not affect combustion)...yet "cleans" you engine...yah~

are you in a terrible dusty of contaminated atmospheric conditions type place where you are changing the air filter frequently and the environmental cabin filter as well (put a pine-tree A/F in that w/ the carbon filter) you really should not need to have additional things "helping" combustion as YOU DO have a fuel filter...change that instead~

put a tank in and see if performance is degraded...this would be the only setback...if yours is a 1.6 liter it DEMANDS a 92 octane...will poop out otherwise~

drobaby if this is about tires...start a new question about them...as the judge here am going to have to insist on that you stick with the size that is specified on the door jamb....anything else would be WRONG~
