Re: GAS?

you can, but it's not good for the car. in time, your knock sensor gets ****ed up and its about $120 to replace it. i had to replace mine cause the previous owner only used regular.

give the girl premium and keep that motor healthy. treat her right and she'll return the love =)

Re: GAS?

if it says premium, only put premium.

not worth wrecking your engine over $2.

Re: GAS?

Man more like $0.20. And unless you are trying to mess up the engine so you can do an engine swap, i would say stick to using premium gas.

Re: GAS?

if you put less than premium in your car you would probably get pre-ignition which will decrease your fuel economy and performance and emissions and etc.. etc.. so you are definitley losing in the long run if you downgrade your fuel for the sake of saving money by buying regular or mid-grade.

Re: GAS?

Put in what it tells you what to put in!
You don't get a prelude for its MPG you get it because its Amazingly Awesome and Sexy
If you want better MPG get a Civic or a Integra.
If you want regular MPG then get an F22a1!

Re: GAS?

Ya'll can't say a goddamn thing about "bad gas mileage" in your lude. Even when mine was boosted I was getting 25-27mpg.

Try 17-18mpg in a 300hp AWD, then come back to me.



put what the manual says to put in.
