If you use the octane rating that came with the car it operates best. a lower octane cause pinging of the valves and loss of instant power.( 3 years drinking coffee using TWO spoons of sugar , then you decide to use ONE spoon..yuck it just don't get it , but you can still drink it). So with 89 octane will work but just make slower take-offs, not jack rabbit starts.

SOURCE: My 1989 Lincoln Continental air suspension went

Yes, theres a kit that replaces the air bags with shocks and springs and then they give you a small module that connects in the trunk to the air suspension diagnostic connector to turn off the air ride light and keep compressor from running, i,ve found that the price ends up costing the same or more to replace than repair. i have done a ton of these and the problem is the bags leak and sometimes cause the airpump to go bad, theres a web site i use that sells these parts cheap and they work great, start by replacing the bags and then the compressor if needed, the selinoids on the bags are reuseable, now if this car has the front and rear air ride then it is cheaper to convert and i think this car does if its got the v6 engine then it is front and rear air suspension, they sell a kit for 499.00 dollars and comes with struts and springs complete to convert i think just one air strut is 200.00 so it is cheaper to convert .i hope this helps, the web site is get google Airnott industries and then go to the coorect year and make for your car,

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 just purchased a 2006 VW Passat 2.0T. When I opened the lid on the gas tank area, there is a sticker indicating that they prefer I use "unleaded premium, 91 octane". Can I use ethanol 89...


yes you can use 89 octane, but at first it may seem like the car is not running right. don't worry the car is okay it is that the 89 is thicker than the 91. just give it some time.

Was told to use premium 89 octane gas only this true?


This is true. The only time you need to apply gasoline with higher octane is when preignition is present. If it sounds like marbles are bouncing in your engine when you are driving then get higher octane. However if the car is in good mechanical condition (cooling system, oil serviced regularly) then 89 octane is perfect.

Does the 09 es350 need 93 octane gas or will it run on 87 octane


you should have a factory affixed sticker inside gas compartment cover listing premium fuel only or also listed in your owners manual. Otherwise if you notice that you're vehicle is making a pinging sound while accelerating or climbing a hill for instance then you may want to step up to 89 or 93 octane and try to avoid purchasing fuel with ethanol added it's **** and degrades your fuel quality/octane ratio

For 2005 mitsubishi outlander which octane (87, 89 or 91) should be used?


lower octanes will not hurt your 2005 outlander truck at all... the engine computer adjusts to the lower octane... you may notice a slightly higher fuel consumption with the lower octane fuel but the money you save on lower octane fuel offsets the mileage.

Spark knocks when taking off from idling/starts to miss after sitting at idle


The 2 most common causes of spark knock are #1 ignition timing too high, and #2 Low octane fuel. Check your ignition timing, and try a mid grade 89 octane or 91 octane fuel, or you could use an octane booster in your fuel. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

I have a 2003 325i. the car starts fine when its warm out or its been in the garage. when its been out in the cold it will crank but not fire.


Many 325's and 330's have this problem. What type of fuel are you using? If its a lower octane try using a higher 89 or 91 octane and put in a bottle of fuel injector cleaner on your next fill up. Hopefully its just your injectors being a bit clogged from using lower octane fuel. Also, try using the same fuel stations and not jumping around to save a few cents, some stations have much more impurities in their fuel.

I use unleaded plus ALL the time for my car is that good or not good. whats the difference between regular unleaded, unleaded plus and super unleaded? which is best to use?


THE BEST THING IS TO USE WHAT YOUR SERVICE MANUAL CALL FOR. REGULAR UNLEADED 87 OCTANE - UNLEADED PLUS 89 OCTANE - SUPER UNLEADED 91 OCTANE. UNLEADED PLUS ITS OKAY. TO USE EVERY NOW AND THEN I WOULD USE 87.YOU CAN RUN 87 - 89 OCTANE.BUT DONT RUN 91 OCTANE ITS FOR THE HIGH PERFORMANCE ENGINE.

Premium 91 or 95


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!
