Default Re: Premium fuel in the GX470 necessary?

you will *not* damage your engine by going with a lower octane fuel.
You *can* damage your engine by going with too *high* of an octane
fuel for an engine that's not designed for it. Higher octane is to
prevent predetonation in a higher compression engine. If you don't
have a high compression engine or if you're not getting any knocking,
you're not going to lose losing power and your not going to hurt your
engine.
