What happens if I use regular unleaded gas in a car that requires super unleaded gas?
I have a land rover freelander and I filled my tank with regular 85 octain, manufactor says only to use 87 octain and above. I called the dealer ship to explore my options as far as solve to my mistake and was told there was not a problem with using 85 octain, I hope this is of some help...
You are using unleaded gas for your 1.4 vauxhall astra before when you started using super unleaded your car stops running Why does it mena that ly car is not compatible with super unleaded?
Unless your owners manual says that you must use super unleaded gas, you should just use regular unleaded. Otherwise you are just wasting your money and possibly harming your engine. super unleaded petrol has a higher octain rate than unleaded. check your owners manual for the optimal rate you should be using for the engine.
Super unleaded fuel won't damage the engine. The engine doesn't need super unleaded so all you're doing is wasting money to buy more expensive fuel. Some argue that the super unleaded fuels tend to have better additives packages...that might be worth considering if you want to justify running super unleaded.
You can use regular unleaded, but super unleaded will make it run smoother and keep the engine cleaner. Won't get fuel deposits in the fuel injectors nowhere near as bad as regular. It costs a little more, but you increase performance and some milage, and it keeps your engine cleaner. Along with regular oil changes. Will run forever as long as you keep the oil changed.
Why does your 1988 Laredo act like it is flooding out after you drive it for about 15 miles and it finally dies compleaty out after awhile?
Depends on which Model/Year Matrix you own. Some require the use of premium fuel and some do not. It yours requires the use of premium fuel then by all means use it. If yours only recommends regular then using premium fuel will provide no benefit whatsoever and is a total waste of money. Your owners manual will tell you exactly what to use.
