Default Re: Fact or Fiction?: Premium Gasoline Delivers Premium Benefits to Your Car

Granted Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream is among the best ice cream in the world, and undoubtedly, if ingested, Ben and Jerry’s is much healthier for your body. However, I have found that with my '04 Vue Red Line, I was getting better mileage if I used premium over regular. I did the experiment and tracked it for 2 months. The first month, I used only regular gas, and the second month, only premium. On average, I achieved almost an extra 25 miles to a tank of gas with the premium octane. Interesting, I thought. I kept using the premium and the mileage kept up, but I never had the time to sit down to figure out if the extra 25 miles was enough of a gain to offset the extra cost. Nevertheless, I did get better mileage.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
