Higher octane will actually make things "dirtier" as it will likely not combust completely. It is not a good idea to run octane higher than what the engine is designed for.chadwick4545 said:is it ture that u should fill ur car once amonth with the highest octane to clean it out? I have the base rsx and was wondein if i could do this?
Base / CDN Premium = 87Kyte said:Base model's recommended gas is not the premium?? So only the type-s is required to use the 93octane or above I guess??
So is there a car on the market that actually needs 93 octane? Or is 93 a marketing ploy to make money since a car may actually use more gas if a higher-than-recommended value is used?Frosty said:I've never heard that you should run a higher octane to clean out the system though. I know running a higher octane will give you less power. I also know that running too low an octane will cause knocking, and the knock sensors will put the car into a gimp mode to compensate.
now i'm gonna go hit upcostco, that is a great deal!pkjie108 said:I use chevron techron Fuel injector cleaner or whatever after every oil change. You can get them at costco in packs of 4 for 12 bucks. As long you pump reputable gas you should be fine.
