Premium vs. Regular Gas

Person gasing car
 

Anyone who has ever stood in front of a gas pump is aware of the different types of gas for cars. But what’s the difference between premium vs. regular, and which one is right for your car? The service department at Jaguar Annapolis wants to help you keep your car running on our Annapolis roads for years to come. Our premium gas vs. regular gas comparison covers what you need to know!

 

 

Premium Gas vs. Regular: What’s the Difference?

Premium gas has a higher octane level than regular gas. That means it’s better, right? Not necessarily—it depends on what your engine was designed for. The higher the octane, the slower the burn. We’ll explain why that’s important below. The other main difference between the two is the price. Here are the details:

  • Octane: Regular gas has an octane rating of 87, while premium has an octane of 92. This accounts for the slower burn.
  • Price: Edgewater gas stations can charge as much as 60 cents per gallon more for premium than regular.

Premium vs. Regular Gas: How Do You Know Which One to Use?

The definitive way to settle any premium vs. regular gas debate is to check your owner’s manual or the inside of your fuel door for a sticker that says whether to use regular or premium. Cars with high-performance engines like the Jaguar F-PACE require gasoline that burns slower so as to prevent engine knocking. But there is absolutely no benefit to using premium gasoline in an engine that does not require it. That’s why you should always go by the manufacturer’s recommendations.
