Low grade

If you are like me, you probably don’t go crazy every time you are at the pump. I usually keep it pretty low key and get the cheapest gasoline possible. Although low grade fuel is the cheapest you can get, don’t be worried about the effects of it on your car. Low grade gasoline meets very strict industry and federal requirements as far as purity and safety is concerned. This is good because you can be confident that you are not putting bad chemicals in your car.

Mid grade

Mid grade gasoline is just a small step up from low grade. It has higher filtration and is purer than its low grade counterparts.

Premium grade

This is the most expensive gasoline. In addition to the highest filtration, it also has additives in it that will help your car run more smoothly. Use this kind of gasoline for very old cars with delicate engines.
