Question of Fuel?? :S


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

i wanted to ask if it is safe to have 98 octane fuel in a standard 02' corolla??

just want to be sure that the engine wont have problems


No problems whatsoever. The car should have a knock sensor, so it'll automatically adjust the timing to suit the higher octane/slower burn. Generally, running higher octane in a modern car is never a problem, the main problem is running LOWER octane than the engine is designed for (ie running 91 or 95 in an STi Impreza or 4AGZE)

Toyota state that all Corolla's built from July 1994 can use Petrol/10% Ethanol blend.

I worked in a refinery belonging to a major oil company for many years and have seen what goes into the various octane petrol blends.

The minimum octane petrol that I will use in any of my cars, is 95 octane!!! Nuff said!
