Have you ever wondered if saving a few pennies at the pump is putting your vehicle’s engine at risk? The staff here at Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep has. Gasoline is expensive these days and vehicles don’t really require premium gas. Going to an off-brand station for a few cents per gallon is tempting. With the help of Edmunds.com, our car dealers in NJ have done some investigating to see if cheap gas does in fact hurt an engine.
The Answer Is – No!
With the help of engineers from the American Automobile Association, or AAA, Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep have found that today’s vehicles have very advanced technology and they are able to adjust for variations in fuel. You shouldn’t notice a drop in performance depending on the gas brand. When it comes down to it, the chief automotive engineer with the Automobile Club of Southern California says to, “buy the cheapest gas that is closest to you.”
Then What’s The Difference?
It comes down to the recipe. Just like different coffee shops have different tasting drinks. Getting gas station coffee isn’t worse for you than Starbucks, necessarily. It just doesn’t have all the fancy additions the name brand does. All gas isn’t the same. It starts with “base gas” and then additives are mixed in to clean a car’s engine and reduce emissions. Then, companies put their own additives in. Major brands claim they have secret ingredients to make their gas better. That doesn’t mean other fuel is total junk and it won’t hurt your vehicle. In Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep’s opinion, use whatever gas floats your boat!
