This should be stated in you owner's manual. Most cars are fine on 87 octane. Some high performance engines will give more power with higher octane fuel.

Best gas grade for 2005 buick lacrosse

87 Octane Regular unleaded, no high octane as it may cause cold starting issues and is a total 100% waste of money. Also all fuel is really the same, no matter the cost of the brand. This is mandated by federal emission laws, it is so called clean burning fuel formulation

I need to know which is the best regular gas to purchase in my area, or which brand specifically like Chevron?

Fuel grades to use are engine dependent. If you know for sure that your engine calls for regular gas, then use it. Fuel in any area have additives specific to the region and time of year. There aren't too any refineries producing fuel, so there is no reason to be brand specific. Just shop for the lowest price since regular gasoline is almost identical no matter what brand you choose.

It ok to use regular gas on a 2005 infiniti q56 if not what can happen?

Using the recommended 91 octane gasoline is your best choice. Using lower octane can cause fouling, miss-fire and detonation(pinging). While not too detrimental in the short term, this can cause premature engine wear over time. If you really need to save money at the pump, Try mixing regular or mid grade with premium in various ratios until you find a blend that runs well. Or Don\'t buy a car that requires premium.

I think I put the wrong grade of gasoline in my 2005 Toyota Corolla. How do I drain the fuel lines?

Depending on the grade of fuel you used just run it down to empty and refill with correct grade, as long as you did use diesel or racing fuel youll be fine, and unless your hearing any odd noises like a pinging your fine, I also wouldnt suggest using fuel injector cleaner it doesnt really do much unless you use it reguarly

Truck will not start after filling with gas.wait a few minutes it cranks and runs fine.any suggestions?

Which brand? What kind of gasoline? Some cars doesn't run with all gasoline grades also there is some gas station with poor quality of gasoline.
Happened to my car too, I always use SHELL but one day I stop in the MOBIIL gas station to put some gas, got home and the next day the car won't start had to by the STP aditive to put in the gas tank. wait about 10 minutes and car starts fine.
Another thing is my car won't run good with all gasoline grades
I always use the regular one.

My 1987 Toyota Cressida jerks when stopped at lights and accelerates slowly.

sounds like your ignition timing is REALLY REALLY late, should be 10 degrees BTDC. also check the air filter as this could cause poor acceleration. those 5M-GE/7M-GE engines also want premium gas (91 pump octane or better) they run horribly on lower grade gasolines.
