Does Lexus Require Premium Gas?

2022 Lexus NX on Highway
 

A Lexus is a luxury vehicle that’s built for Mcallen thrill-seekers and value-seekers alike. With that said, you’re probably asking yourself, “Does Lexus require premium gas?” For most (but not all) of the Lexus lineup, the answer to that question is yes. Most Lexus models require you use at least 91 octane (premium) gasoline, while there are a few that can use 87 octane regular unleaded. Learn more about the Lexus gas type for your new vehicle with the team from North Park Lexus Rio Grande Valley.

What Happens if I Don’t Use Premium?

There are two reasons you shouldn’t use regular gas at the pumps in Mission or Brownsville if your owner’s manual says to use premium. For one, too low grade gas leads to engine knocking, which can damage your engine in the long run. In addition, using regular gas when you should use premium could void your warranty, which will cost you much more than your small savings at the pump.
