Is Premium Gas Necessary?

Many vehicle manuals indicate that the car must use permium gas to run properly. Many owners don't think this is important. Think again. Extended use of regular gas in an engine designed to use premium gas will damage the engine over time. When the low octane gasoline enters the combustion chamber, it will pre-ignite before the ignition is supposed to occur. This "Pre-ignition" process will, over time, damage the pistons, cylinder heads and valves. The additional cost of premium gas is much less, in the long run, than the COST of a New Engine.
