can I use regular gas in a 2012 Taurus SHO
wht does the manual say
It requires premium fuel, if you use regular it will lower the gas milage and possibly damage the engine. Here is a link to the online owners manual: http://www.ford.com/services/assets/Brochure?make=Ford&model=Taurus&year=2012&postalCode=55401
Michael is right, SHO means "super high output" which would require 92 octane or higher. With some cars the computer would compensate for lower octane, but I would not take that chance with this car. lower grade gas would cause knocking that could damage the valves,
Thanks for the info. The manual explains a lot of stuff
Car will run OK, but not as well as with high octane. Follow Ford's specs.
Thanks, will do
