Premium Fuel Only... Really?

I hope this hasn't already been beat to death, but I couldn't find the topic anywhere...

Do we really need to use premium fuel? I love 'er, and I don't wanna break 'er, but I'm low on fundage... Thats why I bought a honda :) If it really is that important I will keep it up, but there have been three owners before me and I can't speak for them or the type of gas they used. Anyway, I'm learning about this car stuff, but I am still in over my head most of the time, so that's why I ask the experts!

Thanks

Re: Premium Fuel Only... Really?

Only use 91 and above. Anything under that and you could run a risk of engine knocking or it stalling by itself. We had a loaner Mercedes and we filled it up with 87 instead of 91 and the engine stalled itself on an automatic. It was a loaner so we didn't care as much but don't even try that on a car that's yours.

Yes you have to the car is factory tuned to run on nothing less than 91. You run the risk of detonation using anything less. Do your car a favor feed her what she likes.
