AAA: Premium Fuel Not Worth The Price

The national average has gone up 23.6 cents since past year and is also up 11.4 cents since last month.

Drivers of vehicles that require premium gasoline should always use it. AAA urges drivers who use premium gasoline to shop around for the best price, as it could vary dramatically between gas stations in any given city. The price in ME went down 3.9 cents to an average of $2.48 a gallon.

"There's no question that higher-octane premium fuel has the potential to boost a vehicle's fuel economy and performance, however, engines have to be calibrated to require that fuel to see the full benefit", John Nielsen, AAA's Managing Director of Automotive Engineering and fix, said in a statement.

The findings fly (drive) in the face of the common-held belief, especially held by owners of luxury vehicles, that if you put premium into your tank, it will perform at an optimal level.

In some cars, usually luxury models, Premium fuel is actually required, not just recommended.
