Will a premium fuel pay for itself?
Premium fuels cost significantly more than the everyday versions. So it’s logical to think that the more you pay for fuel, the further it will take you.
But the majority of standard cars have been designed to run well on regular 95 octane fuel and won’t necessarily be more fuel-efficient on the premium version.
If you have a sports car or a vehicle with a very powerful engine, that’s tuned for a lot of heat, you could get more efficiency from a premium fuel. And if saving money isn’t your primary goal, you could choose premium fuel for the engine health benefits it might offer, such as cleaning.
