Premium Fuel

My previous vehicles, 350z, cooper s, etc all required Premium fuel. So I am used to the added cost.. Is there any drawback to running premium in my 6? Should i ONLY run regular?

The V6 is designed to use regular gas. AFAIK there is going to be no benefit using premium over regular. No need to spend the extra money on premium either.

Not really any advantage HP wise, but I run Shell V=Power in mine. Just good gas that is suppose to help keep the engine components cleaner. Just my 2Cents.

Well then, filled up this morning 19 gallons... 57 dollars... normally would have been 66.00...so 9 dollars a fill up.... I can live with that savings every fill up.

Thank you all for the info.

19 Gallons? Did you push the car into the station by hand?

2010 Stock IBM 2SS/RS

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"
