How Premium Gas Can Save Your Stittsville Car

Your Kanata/Stittsville car is important to you – you want to take care of it. But does that include paying the extra few cents for high octane petrol?

Depending on where you live, you will find petrol ranging from 86 to 94 octane. Typically 87 is considered a normal rating – just plain old regular grade. Below that and you are putting “economy” (cheap) gas in your Kanata/Stittsville car. Anything above 92 octane is considered premium fuel.

Your  Kanata/Stittsville car manual will recommend the octane level you should use – and for the most part you should trust this (they have no skin in the game to get you to pay more for fuel BUT they do want their car to last longer with higher octane fuel… our guess is you want your  Kanata/Stittsville car to last longer as well.

Most  Kanata/Stittsville cars will function just fine for their long life with regular unleaded fuel with an 87-octane rating.

Selecting the optimum type of gas is not always a simple decision. Many petrol stations have additives that could leave harmful deposits on internal engine parts like intake valves, fuel injectors or cylinder walls. Check with a  Kanata/Stittsville service station for advice on the right petrol for your Kanata/Stittsville car.
