Gasoline

Unless you drive a high performance car, there is no reason to put a gas with an octane higher than 87 into the tank.

Check your owner’s manual or talk to a dealership to be sure, but chances are that the 89, 91, or even 93 octane fuel you’re using is a waste of cash: It won’t make your car faster and it will do next to nothing to preserve engine life.

And assuming you save 15 cents per gallon by switching to 87, that could put about $100 back in your pocket if you go through the 656 gallons of gas per year the average driver burns up.
