Read this about using prumium gas

"Cars that have bigger and powerful engines need high-octane levels in the gas. This is due to the fact that the engine is under high pressure and chances of knocking increase. However, if we use premium gasoline in a car which does not have a high performance engine, the fuel might not burn properly, since premium gasoline is harder to burn. This will lead to carbon deposits on the engine leading to engine clogging. This would further reduce the miles per liter and can prove very harmful in the long run. It may also increase emission levels and can cause deposits on the catalytic converter. This would be a big price to pay for a fuel that costs more and believed to be a better one."

I found this using google
