Choosing the Right Gas for Your Hyundai Vehicle

Anybody who ever has used a fuel pump knows that there are a number of different options for fuels, each of which seems to come with its own color coding and number as well as its own name. Have you ever wondered about the available options you're less familiar with and which one is best for your new Hyundai crossover vehicle or sedan?

The good news for Hyundai vehicle owners in the Towson, MD, area is that choosing the right fuel is actually a pretty simple decision. For the overwhelming majority of Hyundai automobiles drivers should simply choose regular unleaded fuel, which has the benefit of being the least expensive option. Of course we always recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure you are using the right fuel, but you'll find that regular unleaded will most likely be the recommendation.

The other options at the pump, the ones with the higher octane ratings, are designed for vehicles that are more prone to engine knock. Typically, those pricier fuels are more accustomed for models with turbochargers or superchargers, but that isn't a typical offering when it comes to Hyundai automobiles.

Just know that there are no benefits to using premium fuel in a vehicle that doesn't require premium fuel. Spending extra money for something with no benefits is silly, especially when Hyundai engineers purposefully design vehicles to run on the most affordable fuel.

If you ever have any questions about the fuel necessary for your vehicles, give us a call or stop by Heritage Hyundai Towson. Our Hyundai service technicians will be happy to answer your questions about the best fuel type for your vehicle and help you however they can.
