Most of today's vehicles are of such low compression ratio that there is truly no need for premium fuel. Premium only helps when the engine is "high compression". The simple fact is, your engine will work better and give you fewer injector related problems if you buy "fresh" fuel that has not been sitting at the filling station for a long time. Older fuel tends to be more likely to result in deposits on the injectors.Answer 2Yes, you really do need to use premium (defined in the owner's manual as 91 octane or above) fuel in your GTP. This is because the higher output of the engine using the compressed air from the supercharger will be more prone to detonation (premature ignition of the air/fuel mixture) than a similar normally aspirated engine. Higher octane fuels prevent detonation and knock. In extreme cases you may use regular octanes, but do not do so for long.
The GTP uses a "high compression" engine because it uses a supercharger.
Hope this helps.
Just buy regular. There isn't enough compression in new factory engines to require premium.
Yes, use only 87 octane regular. Using any higher octane is a total waste of money and provides no benefit whatsoever. The only engine that needs a higher octane fuel is the GT which had a Yamaha designed engine. it does require premium fuel.
no. but it is recommened because of the higher octane its better for the supercharger and you will consume more power.
premium, or, 93 octane for the gt and gxp models. the base model with the v-6 uses regular
Factory Owner's Manual suggests Premium Only. The 2ZZ engine has high compression and needs the higher octane gas.
87 octane regular
regular 87 octane.
No, 87 octane is sufficient
Yes you can use premium gasoline in unleaded because premium gasoline is also unleaded. The only reason it is called premium gasoline is because it has a higher octance then regular unleaded. Regular unleaded has an octane rating of 87 and premium has an octane rating of 92. Premium gasoline burns slower then regualr gas because it has a higher octane rating.
91-93 octane premium
Premium gasoline is rated between 91 and 93 octane, while regular is rated at 87 octane. The octane rating is the resistance of the gasoline to igniting, and higher compression engines need higher octane rating to prevent pre-detonation or pinging. Check your owner's manual to see if you need premium or can run the less expensive regular.

My owners manual recommends premium for optimum performance. I alternate between premium and regular. If you repeatedly use regular with 87 octane you might notice knocking when travelling uphill. My owners manual recommends Plus with an octane rating of 89. For improved performance it recommends premium with an octane rating of 92 or higher. NEVER use Regular with an octane rating of 87.
The Acadia only needs regular 87 octane fuel. It is a myth that Premium will give you better mileage, power, or performance than Regular. If it is pinging on 87 octane then something is wrong with the timing of the engine.
Try regular 87 Octane - if it does not "ping" excessively you should be OK - if it does "ping" excessively try 89 octane
Manny high performance automobiles require premium fuel. Most United States domestic family automobiles do not require premium fuel and will run fine on 87 octane fuel.
At least 91% octane or better. So premium

The 3800 engines with the superchargers require premium gas. Higher octane fuel prevents engine from self ignition of oxygen and gas causing engine misfire.
Premium. Octane rating of 91 or higher.
The Kia Sedona requires 87 or higher octane fuel. In the US, "regular" gas is 87 octane, middle grade is 89, and premium is 91-92. For this car, you only need regular grade gas. You *can* use premium, but it is not at all necessary.
