Your owners manual should tell you what octane rating you should be using, it could be that you got a bad tank of fuel. Might try a can of heat in the tank to try and flush any water you might have, and possibly change the fuel filter.

Is Premium and higher octane better than regular gas in Mazda 3, 2012 car?


Octane ratings have nothing to do with fuel economy or power. The octane rating only indicates how much the fuel air mixture can be compressed before it ignites without the spark plug firing in a hot running engine. Some really high compression engines require higher octane fuels so they don't knock when running. If you don't have a sticker under the filler lid that says you have to use one of higher octane fuels, then don't use high-test.
It used to be that using a low octane fuel in an engine designed to use high octane fuels could damage the engine.
Nowadays, engines are all computer controlled and most high octane engines will re-tune themselves on the fly so that they don't knock if the wrong grade of fuel is used.

My honda accord ex 91 is running exellent since i changed the ignition wires and spurk plugs. it has 107,000 miles, manual transmision. for more power and gas saving, what kind oil motor and gas should i...


With that many miles there is no point in putting synthetic oil in the engine because it will probably be too thin and cause the seals to start leaking. Keep the oil changed regularly (every 3000 miles) and use a brand name 5W-30 grade oil like Mobil1 or castrol. As far as gas goes I would put a tank of high octane gas in about once a month. You can try using high octane all the time but check your mileage per tank on the regular grade and then after you've filled you car about 4-5 times with high grade so you can see if it really is making a difference. Also check your owners manual to see if it recommends higher grade gasoline.

I put unleaded instead of regular gas in my 1999 Plymouth Neon and now the engine sounds like a stock car and extremely loud...is it the gas oris something wrong with the engine?


You can't put unleaded into a 1999 vehicle... you must have things confused. Some vehicles prefer high octane gasoline instead of regular. Using the wrong one (containing 10% ethanol can overheat and ruin the inside of some engines) Dual fuel engines can handle the ethanol.

Running rough


Put some premium or high test gas in the tank and a can of Seafoam. Take it out for a good drive. Sitting for a year or so will cause the old gas to varnish in the fuel lines and injectors. Whyen you park it again, make sure there is NO regular gas in it. Regular gas with ethanol will create havoc with an engine that sits. It makes water.

I put regular gas in my 1999 lincoln town car and now it's running rough, what do I need to do?


Is the check engine light on ?
Normally the computer will try to change the timing to compensate for the lower octane of the fuel. Once you use half of the tank you could put premium in and mix it.
But if the check engine light is on and you have a miss, the problem could be something other than the cheaper gas.

Are you putting regular gas in it? Sometimes a knock can happen when you don't use the correct gas. G35 are high performance and need 87-91 octane gas

Hi, I checked the transmission fluid level.  It is a bit high.  Read an article on web, it says high trans fluid level may cause transmission malfunction.  My technician took some fluid out to lower the level.  Not sure it will fix the problem yet.  Will let you know.
Do you think high trans fluid level may cause the problem I experienced?
Thanks for your help.
