BMW recommends 91 octane. Should you use it? It won't hurt to use 87. But I like to use what is recommended. Which is the best gas? Stick with national chains is your best bet.

Yes, Brand names, they have detergents and cheap gas does not and ALL gasoline sold in Calif is 10% Ethanol. Never ever use E85 If you live someplace like Needles, Blythe..or North say Tahoe area, whatever, if near State Line cross it and buy gas in Arizona or Nevada Oregon. They don't mandate Ethanol
