Premium Gasoline
For Against
 
arguesreason
Engines are designed to run with a certain octane of gasoline. High performance engines usually require a higher octane. You are not buying better gas but the best gas suited to the needs of an engine. People should not buy premium just because they want the best they should buy it if that is what their car requires. This is a case where an owner needs to read the manual.

I used to drive a car which would run on regular or premium gas, and when I put premium in the tank I would get 4-6 additional miles per gallon. So from my experience it appears that premium gas allowed my engine to run more efficiently.

There may need to be a third column on ArgueHow: "Depends". I think many people misunderstand Premium Gasoline and don't really know when (or if) it should be used. Some engine types run optimally with a higher octane content, but you shouldn't think that putting it into your POS will make the engine run any better.

It is just as good as regular, just with a huge mark up! It doesn't do anything special for the car!
