Yes, it can, but, there will be no benefit. Corolla engines are not engineered for hi-octane fuel. In other words, the engine will not perform any better with the "best"/most expensive fuel. Stick to 89 octane, that is what the engine is designed for; save your money. The only Toyota cars that "need" super gas is the Supra Turbo and the Celica GTS.

Just replaced timing chain on 04 range rover and now engine taps and no power


if your engine is tapping, the easiest thing to try first is to put some higher octane gasoline in the tank. Instead of regular, put in premium. Most airports have super high octane gasoline, but get ready to pay more.

What kind of gas does a maxima 2001


According to page 10-3 of the 2001 Nissan Maxima Owner's Manual:

FUEL RECOMMENDATION
Unleaded premium gasoline with an octane
rating of at least 91 AKI (Anti-Knock Index)
number (Research octane number 96)
If unleaded premium gasoline is not available,
unleaded regular gasoline with an
octane rating of at least 87 AKI (Research
octane number 91) can be used.
However, for maximum vehicle performance,
the use of unleaded premium gasoline
is recommended.

Engine "knock" is not just an unusual sound - but over time can cause real damage to the engine. You *should* use fuels with the recommended octane levels, but if you choose to use fuel with a lower octane level due to reduce fuel costs - do not repeatedly use fuel that causes engine knock. Find the "sweet spot" between the cost of lower octane fuel and an octane level that does not cause knocking. Expect fuel economy and performance to drop with lower octane fuels, too.

Good luck!

I accidently put super unleaded gas.on my VW beetle 2002


That is not a problem it is actually recommended that you use premium 93-94 Octane fuel, if you put turbo blue (115) in it that would be a problem but 93-94 octane is the VW recommended fuel type.

What kind of fuel does the '06 pathfinder use


For optimum performance, you should use high-test or premium gasoline in your Nissan Pathfinder, as per Nissan's specifications. Using a lower octane gasoline can result in premature ignition which can in the long run damage your engine.

Put premium gas.

CAN YOU USE REGULAR GAS IN A 2006 LEXUS GX470?


Only short term when absolutely necessary...

Your owner's manual says:
"
Fuel selection:
Select premium unleaded gasoline with an Octane Rating
of 91 (Research Octane Number 96) or higher for optimum
engine performance. However, if such premium type
cannot be obtained, you may temporarily use unleaded
gasoline with an Octane Rating as low as 87 (Research
Octane Number 91)."

Jaguar s-type restricted performance displayed


Its most likely the coils and spark plugs, sometimes caused by oil leaking from the valve cover gasket. The coils deteriorate over time from engine heat and need to be replaced at 90-100k
Local garages don't have the Jaguar diagnostics terminal and are unable to do more than find basic error codes with a reader. Its important to get this fixed because it's causing damage to your caltalytic converters. They are expensive.

Fuel recommended for Lexus ES 350


92 or 93 octane. In my area of the country we have regular, super and premium thus the 92 or 93 octane fuel is called premium.  I would assume that this grade would be what you are calling super premium.  Basically it is going to take the best quality gas that they sell at the station.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for the opportunity to help you and thanks for an honest rating.  I hope you continue to use FixYa in the future for all of your automotive questions!

Gasoline type


I use 87 octane with Lucas Oil fuel additive. Car runs noticeably better, gets better mileage and solved problem with engine fouling in cold weather (which caused check engine light to trip). Audi dealer service rep told me that premium cold weather fouling has been traced to additives commonly used in premium fuel. That service rep "unofficially" recommends using 87 octane to customers experiencing problems with engine fouling in cold weather starts.
