only if you like throwing money away, yet yes and no some brands plus, is worse than others low octane , the operator book tells the fuel requirement basic, that is best as the whole car is built around that plan ,shop for a more quality brand ,

I personally put premium in everything. Except my beater truck. Premium burns hotter and cleaner than regular. In the 30+ years of driving vehicles I've never had a fuel system problem that I didn't inherit from a previous owner. In fact, my '93 Chevy Caprice, which I bought new, had all of it's original sensors, EGR valve, catalytic converter, etc. still working fine when I sold it in 2012! The car also had it's original copper core spark plugs in it until the 90,000 mile tune up! I was told they could probably go until the next tune up, at 120,000 miles, but I opted to change them. It was then that the Chevy Dealer asked me what kind of gas I used. I told the tech premium and he replied I knew it! Running a better grade of gas does make a difference in the long run. Others will say you're wasting money, it's unnecessary, etc. I'll never believe that. HTH. -Jim

It does burn cleaner, and last a few miles longer, I use mid grade in most of mine and ever third or forth tank full I use super unleaded and also go to the station out of the city limits that had real gas without the ethanol. So thanks for adding that above, I guess when I think about longer I would of said what I do too so I decided to chime in again to say what I actually do myself.

I also only let my tank level get to around the 1/4 tank mark , then I fill back up at the same store if I am local. My above statement I will delete as higher grade fuel is better than the low grade stuff and I interject myself and am corrected.
