Octane is not a rating of quality, it is an antiknock index used by auto manufacturers and gasoline companies. The higher the octane, the less chance of gasoline pre-ignition. If your vehicle is rated for 87 octane, then anything higher is a waste of money, as the vehicle was not engineered for it.


This being said, the best gasoline to use is Top Tier Gasoline. Top Tier is cleaner and better refined for a modern engine.

I'm not sure about any higher detergents, you can do homework on that, but 87 is what's recommended. Anything higher is generally a waste unless you're towing in the heat or have high performance upgrades. The Top Tier gasoline have all the detergents an engine needs.
