Do INFINITI Cars Require Premium Gas?

2021 INFINITI Q50 driving down road

You’ve happily left the dealership with your new INFINITI automobile, and you’re ready to drive it on our Bloomington streets. But now you have questions, like, “Should I use regular or premium gas?”. The short answer is that you should always fill the tank of your INFINITI vehicle with premium gas. But why do INFINITI cars require premium gas? What are the benefits of premium gas? You have questions. We have the answers below.

Should I Use Regular or Premium Gas?

If you’re at the pump of one of our Eden Prairie gas stations wondering, “Should I use regular or premium gas for my INFINITI automobile?”, we’re here to tell you the answer is yes. INFINITI recommends using fuel with at least 91 octane, so that your vehicle will function the way it was designed.

Why Do INFINITI Cars Require Premium Gas?

So, why do INFINITI cars require premium gas? The engine in your INFINITI automobile was precision-engineered to deliver the kind of high performance that can only come from premium gas. Using regular gas will cause the engine to respond sluggishly, meaning you won’t get the kind of horsepower the car was designed for. Over time, using low-octane fuel can decrease the life of your engine.

What are the Benefits of Premium Gas?

Premium gasoline brings a whole host of benefits for high-performance engines like the one in your INFINITI automobile. Here are just a few:

  • Engine Health – The use of premium gas minimizes carbon buildup on the cylinders.
  • No Engine Knock – Engine knock is much less of a problem with high-octane fuel.
  • Better Gas Mileage – The better fuel efficiency may actually offset the higher price of premium gasoline.
  • Optimize Performance – A high-performance engine like the one in your INFINITI automobile will only reach its potential in horsepower and other performance metrics with premium gasoline.
