^^^ You will get better results if you switch to the recommended fuel for your car.

I get 26.5 on average...been as high as 27.x but only if I baby it. The closer the pedal gets to the floor, the less MPG...LOL.


Yea, tho I cruise through the valley of the shadow of rice, I will fear no Turbo,
for Torque art with me. Thy rods and crankshaft, they comfort me.

when i was using regular i was getting 23 MPG and one day i accidentally put premium and just started to use it ever since. and no its not gonna hurt the engine or ruin my MPG. premium is a better type of fuel and cleans your injectors so how can something thats better be bad for your car??? and now im getting 28 MPG so yeah

the only way I could mabey see better MPG from premium is that you used Shell with Zero ethanol? I dunno, I ge the same MPG with 91 or 89 Octane, I jsut put regular in my car, hell regular is too damn expensive as it is.

gas is a pain in the ass either way you put it. to be honest i drive a lot and i fill up maybe every 2 and a half weeks if not longer. and thats cuz i let it get to the 2nd line before E and fill it up and it is about 23 dollars for me to fill up and thats premium. i fell like i rarely fill up the tank
