Asked by May 14, 2012 at 12:26 PM about the 2005 Lincoln LS V8 Ultimate

Question type: General

I just purchased this vehicle on 5/08/12 and noticed it wasn't a V6 but instead a V8.  Now with that being said, would this vehicle function properly with regular gas instead of premium gas? gas prices today are insane. please advise

The owners manuals states that it needs fuel with at least a 91 octane rating. If you run a lower octane there is the possibility of reduced performance as well as the increased chance of engine knock.

Congrats on your purchase, I know you'll love your v8 over the v6 and this car will not be pushed around. I also have the 3.9 v8 and use 87 octane, but every 3rd /4th fill up with 91/93 octane. You will get better gas mileage with 91 octane or higher but running 87 octane will not hurt your engine, you may hear your vales rattle more becauce 87 octane does not burn as clean. Again congrats.
