Fact or Fiction
All cars run better with premium gasoline.
A higher octane rating does not necessarily equate to better performance. The owner’s manual will tell you what type of gasoline is recommended for your car, and most cars are designed to run on regular gasoline. Unless you drive a high-performance car that requires a higher-octane gasoline to prevent engine knocking, the only real difference you’ll notice from upgrading to a high-octane premium gas is how much more money you are spending at the pump.
