Check your owners manual or if premium fuel is required, it is usually posted near the gas gauge " use premium fuel only ".

Which octane is recommended for my infinti g35


yes....87 is perfectly fine and should be used all of the time with confidence. The higher octane fuels can sometimes help with a knocking engine but are mostly used for higher end vehicles.

Been using 87 octane in '02 maxima for 1yr. have replaced oxy & nkock sensors. Is this due to low octane?


Ok the 2002 Maxima 3.5 requires premium fuel 91 octane. According to the owners manual for optimum performance use 91 octane, you can use 87 octane unless you get pinging sounds. Sounds like you just need to use the proper octane. Occasionally I will run regular 87 and can really feel a loss of power. When I use 91 octane the car is a rocket ship.

Is premium gas a must for the regular 4.7L V8.


Your jeep has two engine options, one was a standard 4.7 V8 and the High Output V8. Below is the recommended octane fuel rating.
Unleaded regular, 87 octane (R + M)/2 - Standard;

Unleaded premium, 93 octane (R+M)/2 recommended - High Output

Premium gas is still unleaded. Using a higher grade gas (ie: 89 or 91 octane) isn't going to hurt anything, and it isn't going to help anything either. You should stick to regular 87 as the higher octane rating gas isn't giving you any advantages.

Premium or regular gas


Fuel comes in different grades due to octane levels, the higher grade the higher octane, the higher price. If you have the owners manual or window sticker, you would see that the car was probably made to run on 87 octane (regular unleaded), I have been through the different octane levels for more than 30 years and I have decided that the cheapest runs as well as the most expensive. The higher octane will sometimes cause an engine to ping or rattle under acceleration, if this happens to yours go back to the cheap stuff and everything will be fine. That is my opinion, others may differ, but I run my BMW on the cheapest I can find and I still get 31 MPG hwy.

What type of gas should i use in a 2005 lincoln navigator?


HI. i recommend using the premium in this vehicle. This will ensure optimal performance. The fuel system will accept the regular blend as well but, this is not what this vehicle was engineered for. the regular blends octane level is not sufficient for optimal acceleration and overall performance.

Please rate and god bless:)
