Chevrolet Cruze 2nd genHow many of you new Cruze owners are still using 87-octane gasoline in it?How many of you new Cruze owners are still using 87-octane gasoline in it? David
I do but sometimes usually use 93
Same ^^ sometimes I switch it up
Used to when I did a lot of commuting. Tho the car was sluggish with 87. Now I use only 93.
@Eric I notice the same. I’m going to wait until Satan’s Nutsack (Florida) cools off a bit and I’ll be going back to 87. Definitely not as smooth when it’s really heat soaked and also 100° ambient. More noticeable in heavy stop and go traffic
@Matt that’s what I notice. Heat soaked engine with hot outside temps with 87 oct it’s pretty hesitant on accelerating. Tho even in the winter time with winter gas it can be just as bad. I personally think it’s best to run 93 octane all the time.
@Eric and for 5 bucks a tank, the car gets such good mileage it doesn’t make much difference. Unless you’re driving thousands of miles a week ?
Matt Olson well ya when I was commuting a lot I was doing nearly 500 to 700 miles a week so that’s why I used 87. Now it’s down to barely 200 for me a week so I fill up with 93 purely. Also not to mention my car is bnr tuned now so it runs even better.
@Eric definitely don’t want to use the cheap juice with a tune ??
@Matt definitely cause I told BNR I use 93 only now lmao
The car was engineered to run 93 for the best fuel economy. Anything lower is lawnmower gas.
87 since I got it Feb. ‘18
I run 85 out here in CO
I started with 87 but I’m on 91 now (warm weather and 91 is the highest in my area). 87 does help the wallet, but I’ve noticed the 91 gives me a much smoother acceleration. It ain’t anything crazy but it’s much smoother and less abrupt than the 87 (at least in the warm weather)
Premium only in mine.
93. Don’t want to knock the engine to death and chip a piston or something. Turbo cars need 93
I run 89 about to do 93 again though
Shes a daily so I get cheap. The odd time I put 91 in
93 all the way for me! Then again I’m tuned from gm and was told 91 or above from now on.
The broke ones
@Glenn i could buy a Cruze for 15 k but if you don’t get the expensive gas you’re broke? ?
@Bailey eh moreso cheap than anything. Get the good shit so your 15k car will last longer ?
@Glenn fair enough ???♂️
110k on 89 runs great. Occasionally I fill up with 91 when the forecast calls for swalls.
Sounds like everyone here went for a Briggs and Stratton swap. Sick.
??♀️ 2017 with 85.5k going strong
Only pour IPA beer in it, premium shit only
I got the car thinking it was going to last me forever so I was 93 only
After 1 year I can’t wait till I hit that 2 year mark to trade it in so now 87 it is
17 hatch I’m at 104k only use 93 and no issues
Nah 45-50 cetane is preferable over 87 octane. ??
I use what ever the cheapest one at Costco is I believe it’s 89 or 83
I run 93 all day everyday
93 mobil synergy supreme + for my 18 rs redline
Running 87 in a newish cruze is false economy . 91 i
