Here’s what you need to know about picking the best fuel type for your vehicle every time.  

What to Consider at the Gas Station  

You have a few main fuel options to pick from when it’s time to fill up your vehicle, and picking the right type can be very important. Not only can it improve vehicle efficiency, but also ride comfort and longevity.

Here are a few questions to ask yourself when deciding which fuel type is best for your vehicle:  

  • What kind of driving do I do? Different driving styles have different fuel needs. For example, performance and high-luxury vehicles perform better with high octane gasoline. If you’re planning on doing some performance driving or your vehicle is more for comfort and luxury, high-octane gas is the way to go.  
  • How many miles does my car have? Modern vehicles are built better than ever, but you can make the most of your vehicle by giving it the best gasoline for the job. Premium gas is typically better for vehicles with high mileage, but it’s always best to check your manual. If you’re looking to get better mileage out of your car, then premium fuel is the way to go.
  • How old is my car? The age of your car can also influence which type of fuel you should use to fill up your vehicle. Always consider vehicle age and condition when selecting a fuel type. You also want to consult your vehicle manual, especially because older vehicles have different gasoline needs.
