Should I Use Premium Gas for My Vehicle?

The short answer is to check with your owner's manual and see which type of gasoline your vehicle requires. Most cars operate on standard, low octane gas, also known as e87. However, some high-performance vehicles like sports cars that have higher engine outputs will require high octane or premium gas. 

High Octane vs. Low Octane Gas

If a vehicle requires high octane gas, then it is important to use it as low octane gas will impact performance in a negative way and could even be damaging to the engine.

There's a misconception that high octane fuel is better, and it must be better because it's more expensive. In this case, it's not true. If a vehicle is not engineered and designed for high octane fuel, it doesn't benefit it at all to run high octane fuel and, in some cases, even gives you worse mileage and performance.
