Turns out Premium gas doesn't do much

GasBuddy's daily survey of gas outlets says the price has fallen 4.1 cents per gallon in Vermont in the last week, averaging $2.50. Today, that spread has doubled with premium gasoline costing nearly 50 cents more per gallon and is still climbing. "Drivers see the "premium" name at the pump and may assume the fuel is better for their vehicle", John Nielsen, AAA's managing director of Automotive Engineering and fix, said in a news release.

Across the country, the largest changes in average gas prices by state: DE (-5 cents), Colorado (-5 cents), ME (-4 cents), Oklahoma (-4 cents), Vermont (-4 cents), OH (+4 cents), Kentucky (-3 cents), Missouri (-3 cents), SC (-3 cents) and South Dakota (-3 cents). Engineers at AAA set out to see whether using Premium gas instead of Regular really makes a difference in these cars.

Because premium fuel costs as much as 25 percent more than regular, the increased performance may not be worth it, AAA said. "Now we can confidently say that unless the vehicle manufacturer requires it, or you drive in demanding conditions, motorists who buy premium are wasting money at the pump". But that's just an average.

The fuel economy improvements recorded during AAA testing do not offset the potential extra cost to purchase premium gasoline. That means filling up a 20 gallon tank would cost an additional $10 when using premium fuel. On average, vehicles produced 1.4% more horsepower using Premium.

Of course, the AAA study wasn't exactly high science-it (or, rather, the Auto Club of California, which actually physically ran the tests) tested only six different vehicles: a 3.5-liter Ecoboost Ford F-150, a 6.2-liter V8 Cadillac Escalade, a 5.0-liter V8 Ford Mustang, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Mazda MX-5 Miata, a 1.8-liter four-cylinder Audi A3, and a 1.4-liter four-cylinder Jeep Renegade. S. recommend, but do not require, premium gasoline.

Since drivers of these vehicles are unlikely to see any benefit from using premium gasoline during typical city or highway driving, a combination of laboratory and on-road tests were performed to simulate extreme driving scenarios such as towing, hauling cargo, and aggressive acceleration. But most engines are created to run on Regular all the time.
