Type of Gas

5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I don't know if anyone on here knows but the new 2016 sparks with the new LV7 engines in them have a high compression ratio of 10.6:1

 

if you want increased fuel economy plus better performance, put in higher octane gas. I use 91 in my spark. throttle response and overall performance is noticeably better!

 

the better gas works better with the high compression ratio

I really see no difference other than hitting me for a couple more dollars per tank in the spark. Running 87 or 89, 91, 93 feels the same to me.

Manual says above 91, the lowest they sell here is 95, that's the cheapest (about 4 USD per gallon) so that's what I go with.
