    To be honest, I wouldn't put anything over 89 in it.



    Too high an octane in a car that doesn't recommend high octane gasoline could damage your valves. It will run too hot.



    Just my opinion.

87 octane is ideal for your accent.

It's a little commuter car. It's designed to save you money.
Anything over 87 is just a waste of money, UNLESS your engine is knocking at 87. Then you should step up to the next highest grade.
89 is a made up octane. It's just a mix of the lowest grade and the highest grade. I used to work at a mobil gas station for a year, and the only grades i knew wer 87 and 93, but 89 was an available option. it's just a way for oil companies to benefit off of ignorance.
91 and 93 is for high performance engines, turbo-induction, superchargers, that sort of stuff.
you should be fine sticking with the 87 though, but move up to "89 octane" or 91/93 if your engine knocks a lot.
hope this helps.

    87 Octane.
    you dont need premium gas for an economy car.
    it's just a waste of money.
    Yes, premium gas burns slower, but it's engineered for performance vehicles...such as an Audi A8 or the Hyundai Tiburon SE V6...you konw...cars with turbo's, superchargers, that sort of stuff.

    UNLESS your car is knocking and pinging at 87 octane, then you can move up to the next one....which is usually 89 octane....

Hello Joshdhorz,

The best fuel you can use on your vehicle is any octane that contains at max 10% ethanol.

Ethanol is an alcohol-based fuel additive made by fermenting and distilling crops that have been broken down into simple sugars.

A 10% blend of ethanol and gasoline will not harm any engine or fuel system component. However, the ethanol has a cleaning effect that will remove rust and other junk from the fuel system. This necessitates frequent fuel filter changes until the fuel system is cleaned out.

Most gas stations in our area are set like so:

87 octane (Up to 10% ethanol)
89 octane (Up to 5% ethanol)
91 octane (No ethanol)

Now we do not have 93 or 95 octane available to us here, so I am currently unsure as to what is in 95 octane fuels. In my opinion, I would use 91 octane (No ethanol) for the majority, while adding 87 or 89 octane (5-10% ethanol) ever so often to clean the lines.

I hope this helps you out,

Shadow

Also if you would not mind taking a moment out of your day and rating my solution it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

SOURCE: 98 Hyundai Accent, front windscreen wash not spraying Pump runnin

If you dont have access to compressed air and a blow gun , to blow down the jets, then use a needle and try to clear the jets, and then try the wshers, you will have to adjust the jets after. If you still have nothing, or it is very weak, then remove the pipe and blow down it , also with the pipe off, try the washer pump to see if it is pumping strongly, because, although the pump is working/making a noise, it may be too weak, in which case you will need to replace the pump.
Hope this helps

The reason the gas station pump shuts off is when the fuel reaches the tip of the gas nozzle, so when you are filling your car and the gas nozzle (gas stations pipe) keeps shutting off it means that the pipe that runs to the gas tank is not open completely, what happens is when you pump the gas in the car the supply pipe from the gas tank opening to the tank fills up quickly and this causes the gas station pipe nozzle to shut off, have some body take down the gas tank and have a look at the gas tank opening and also gas supply pipe that runs from the gas filler opening ( on the car body) to the gas tank. Have a look at it and please don't forget to rate the answer if it was helpful, thanks!

you have a restrictor in the fuel filler neck to stop fuel leaking out if the car overturns,unfortunately it also means you have to hold the fuel gun 1/2 way to stop it shutting off.also to fill right up, you have to rock the car a little when nearly full.autofill guns are only in USA/Canada. you cannot take out thr restrictor......

What is good compression on a 2006 hyundai accent


i am guessin you have the 1.6l engine. from what i recall a few months back while reading through a service manual, the ideal compression ratio should be about 190psi, with a minimum ratio of 170psi. the difference in the cylinders should not exceed 20psi. based on the results you have given, i think you have a serious problem. i would recommend you try a "wet' compression test. that would atleast give an indication of whether or not the piston rings are worn out as well.
to answer your second question, the 1.6l has a total of 16 valves, four per cylinder, 2 exhaust and 2 intake.

Hi we have a hyundai accent 1997 mvi it is making a ticking noise from the engien we thought it was the tapets but they look fine any one have any ideas what it could be and how to fix it


Depending on exactly where on the engine it's coming from,it could be just the fuel injectors.They become noisy because of certain gasoline(low grade independent refinery company).I had a 1995 accent that had been fueled with SHELL gas.One day when I had revved it to 6000rpm in all 4 shifts.It was tapping like hell and I thought I blew a lifter (tappet).But it went away the next day. the car tough out till 2008 with 260,000km.Rusted out because of Canadian winters.
