Its not really as the factory computer has been tuned for a minimum octane rating of 95 if you use any less the engine will detonate and ping this will cause your knock sensors to set of which will place the computer into limp mode and you will have to take it to a dealership to get the codes cleared.
so thats why its best not to lol.
please leave feedback

Knocking at low idle

Any clues as to the model, engine type, age, fuel type?

Most likely general cause is worn big end bearings. These knock especially under load.

If a petrol car, then low-octane fuel could cause this, as well as incorrect ignition timing.

Knocking/tapping when accelerating on 2003 nissan x-trail td

Usually an indication of Bad fuel, needs a tune up or Slipped Timing. Most likely bad fuel or tune up depending on when the last time you replaced the plugs and wires was. If you have been using the 87 Octane low grade fuel that would cause this or if you happened to get some bad fuel at a station. The vehicle will run on 87 octane but was designed to have a minimum of 89 octane fuel, the mid grade. If you haven't replaced your spark plugs in the last 25,000 miles replace the spark plugs and wires. If you suspect the fuel is the issue you can get injector cleaner or Octane boost and add to a FULL tank of gas to clean it out.
