Premium 91 or 95
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,
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!
