I have always thought that a 10. Highest observed mpg was once 35. Years ago when working as an environmental planner in the transportation field I remember using a computer program that calculated automobile fuel consumption at various speeds. They automatically adjust for 91, 87, or even lower fuel ratings by backing off the spark timing, then limit the throttle. Cars are better today than ever. Not sure where the 10 cents came from. My guess is that Lexus recommends the premium so that they can boast the absolute best performance possible.
Lexus is limiting production to 2,000 copies. You can use a lower rating just as long as it is unleaded and your car will survive — go ahead and fuel up so you can get where you need to go then continue to use the required, higher octane the next time you need gas, or as soon as your favorite station has it available for you. Each time I had a different service writer. The multi-information display within the combination meter will show a car icon with the selected following distance. When taking turns at speed, the suspension is soft and there is some body roll, but the suspension does a great job of absorbing bumps and potholes. I believe that the models with V8's are still required to use premium.
There is no way I would travel that speed driving on a freeway unless that was the prevailing speed at the time. By the way, I can't tel the difference in the performance. Why does it go down to 60? These V6 engines have been rated as being up to four horsepower more powerful when used in Lexus vehicles. Nice Car I love everything about the car except for the console. Certainly not for safety or they would have made a bigger deal about the limit change. But I have a few troopers personal cars insured and they have all told me 10mph over too. Slightly older cars that tell you to use 91, go on to say that using 87 will result in lower performance computer detuning.
So i'm confused to what I should use. When your in freeway traffic and your not the lead dog, you'd better keep up. Today's cars also are more high-tech than ever. I guess I go with what the dealer said. I would imagine the manual and the gas door would be the same.
Specific octane requirements were not explicitly listed in manufacturer specifications. Tailgating, weaving in and out, or any aggressive driving sticks out like a sore thumb and will surely get you some unwanted attention. And finally in the third group high-octane gasoline is required for proper operation. Its main feature is a trip computer that provides outside temperature, driving range, fuel consumption and average speed readouts. If they start issuing camera enforced speeding tickets I fully anticipate that , driving will be an absolute nightmare! The report also showed that initial quality increased by 5 percent across the industry, though audio, entertainment, and navigation features experienced more problems as technology advances. So here is my research: Camry: 2011 Technical Specs Standard Engine 3.
The report also showed that initial quality increased by 5 percent across the industry, though audio, entertainment, and navigation features experienced more problems as technology advances. I drive it until I have half a tank and then fill up with 89 octane. Just remember to always fill up when you reach half a tank. Will probably keep using regular unless I hear something different. A knock sensor can adjust the timing for different grades of gasoline. The two share the same 109. Oddly enough the hybrid version recommends premium.
The 2015 does not have that recommendation for the 350. This may be worth it for you. Camera enforced traffic signals have recently become extremely popular. I've compared the part numbers for these V6 engine assemblies used in Toyota and Lexus brand vehicles and the part numbers have been identical. High-performance cars often require a higher octane gas to run at maximum performance levels. No place to put your phone or conveniently charge your phone. Lately Lexus has dropped to recommending regular and so did the performance specs.
I've owned the car for 5 years and I've had no problems. Not because of changes in the road. Exotics, such as Ferrari, use tiny microphones in the engine well to detect knock which can occur in these cars using octane ratings lower than 96. Yet I find with Toyota products, toggle between mid and premium works just fine. I have noticed no difference in performance nor milage. But for the majority of drivers, street driving does not produce these conditions and lower octane fuel is fine.
Most mechanics agree that there is little performance difference between 87 and 89 grade octane gasoline. However not all middle-premiums are the same they are a pump blend of hi-test and regular gas. Here our premium is always 91. Just a subtle and unexpected drop to 60. The car never pinged, started on first button push and made me happy every day. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling. Either engine will use the cheap stuff though the optional twin-turbo V6 will try a little harder with premium.
More times than not I had to use 87 and 91 Octane because that was all they had on the base. Still get around 30 mpg. I usually fill up at the half tank level. An Eco Driving indicator helps encourage economical driving. I bought regular fuel today for 1.
