Should I be using premium gasoline in my Mazda car or crossover SUV?

Have you ever pulled up to the gas pump and wondered what those different numbers mean next to the prices? Well, those numbers are that fuel’s octane rating. Octane is a fuel additive that helps keep the fuel stable and prevent the engine from knocking. This knocking sound is actually the fuel spontaneously igniting which can cause engine damage in the long term. If you’ve been wondering, ‘Should I be using premium gasoline in my Mazda car or crossover SUV,’ the maintenance experts at Gwatney Mazda of Germantown have the answers.
