Gas, regular, plus, premium?

alright, this might be a stupid question but im confused. Im running a h22a type s engine and wondering what type of gas should i use. I did some research that 5th gen prelude should use premium gas. but my father has 35yrs experience and told me to use regular because higher the gas.. the gas is hotter for the engine. but my friends all use premium for there sport cars.. so im just wondering what gas do your guys use for your 5th gen's.. thanks

Re: Gas, regular, plus, premium?

1) Search... there are threads about this already.

2) Listen to your father's advice and you will get knocking and other related problems.
Our high compression engines require the higher octane to prevent pre-mature ignition.

There is a LOT more to know about fuel, the higher octane does not give you increased HP btw.

Re: Gas, regular, plus, premium?

Ignore all these people's advice. Diesel is where it's at. The high compression nature of the engine allows the diesel to compression ignite (just like in a truck engine) and I have seen my economy go through the roof since using it. This is a recording.
