I would suggest you check your owners manual and see what fuel octane rating they recommend. You could also try the dealership. My own OPINION is that the better the octane the better the run. Other then that think in the final decision, it's up to you and your wallet.

If you are in the US, the highest octane you will find is either 91 or 92 which will be fine for your BMW. Unfortunately, BMW specifies premium fuel in all their vehicles and we have found it gives slightly better gas mileage, although not enough to offset the extra cost per gallon. You can experiment with a tank of premium and then fill with mid-grade (89) then premium and alternate back and forth and see if there is any difference. The anti-knock sensors will usually offset any lower octane issue and the one or two octane points should not be an issue. You can experiment as you wish. If you either hear knocking or have reduced performance, simply top off with premium and continue to use it.

Hi i have a 318i bmw 2001 my fuel consumption is


Last month, my wife complained of high gas usage as well. I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to change the air filter the last time I did the oil change. It had been over 5 months since I'd put a new one in. So, we got a new air filter, and monitored the usage, and it was back to normal again. Maybe try this?
