Premium Gas Is A Waste Of Money, AAA Says

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — You can stop paying for premium gas — AAA says it’s a waste of money.

Some drivers like to treat their cars to the high-octane fuel thinking it boosts performance. Premium blends can cost around 50 cents a gallon more than regular, but AAA says that’s money out the tailpipe.

In a national survey on gasoline use, they found Americans spent more than $2 billion on premium gas when they didn’t need to.

AAA also found premium didn’t increase horsepower or fuel economy.

    Total nonsense. You’d think a group like AAA would know better. I reckon they think ethanol is a good thing.

    Try running a Corvette on regular. It might be okay for a tank in a pinch, but dream on AAA
