In fact, nearly every luxury automobile on the market today recommends premium-grade gasoline, but not all. I was in the middle lane traveling at the speed of the traffic--65mph.

The car began to stall when I stopped the vehicle. It only says close on single click or the warning lamp will come on. If you put higher-octane stuff in there you may get even more performance, too. The electronic four-speed automatic transmission provides an outstanding balance of smooth shifting and quick response to make best use of the engine's torque curve. Since premium costs about 10% higher than regular your paying about the same amount. The car never pinged, started on first button push and made me happy every day.
