So you're standing at the gas pump and there are multiple fuel types available: a low-cost that's marked with an 87 octane rating and also has 10% ethanol, a medium priced and a premium with a 91 octane rating. So which one do you pick?
It's simple, always check your car manual for what's recommended. You should at least match that number, but it doesn't really help to exceed it. Also, follow all the guidelines for general maintenance.
