Premium Gas Recommend


Asked by May 21, 2014 at 05:32 AM about the 1996 Oldsmobile Aurora 4 Dr STD Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

On my dash it says "premium gas recommend" does that mean I have to use 91/92
octane gas or can I use 89/90 octane gas?

91 octane or better. Anything less and you risk damage to the engine. "Penny wise, pound foolish"

It is an eighteen year old Oldsmobile- the lower grade gas won't make much difference at this point- it ain't gonna blow yo' engine up-
