Yes, this is a very high performance car and will run better on premium fuel but it will adjust to run okay on regular fuel with no harm done. Puzzles me you would hear engine knock at all due to the grade of fuel. These engines have a knock sensor that retards spark so there is no fuel knock. Mean time, run premium, check your engine oil level and show it to your mechanic and see what he hears.

How about the fuel systeme cleaner ? Because i'v heard that it will clean the engine
