When you pull your car up to the gas station to fuel up, which type of gas do you choose? Most gas stations nowadays carry three main types of gasoline (not including diesel): Regular, Midgrade and Premium.
Now be honest, are you just always choosing the cheapest, regular gas option to fuel up your automobile? Are you sure that’s they type of gasoline that your car should take? The team at Mojomotors.com has created a great infographic using data taken from fueleconomy.gov that clearly shows you which car models should be using which type of gas. Check it out below!
So…were you using the right kind of gasoline in your car? While it might be possible to get away with using a lower fuel grade in your vehicle for a time, we really don’t recommend it. Using a lower fuel grade than your vehicle’s engine requires lowers it’s power and efficiency, and could even cause some damage after a while.
