Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists Often Asked About Premium vs. Regular Gas

Posted November 27, 2022 10:05 AM

Riverside residents often ask the question: "Will using premium gas make my car run better?" The answer is simple. But first, let's talk about what exactly premium gasoline is.

Different grades of gasoline have different octane ratings. Regular gasoline has the lowest octane rating and premium the highest. Most gas stations around Riverside, CA, also carry a mid-grade that falls in between the two. The octane range for the different grades of gas varies by region due to altitude differences.

Engines require different octane ratings because of design differences. For example, turbocharged engines usually require premium gas.

There's a sticker on your gas tank filler lid that tells you the minimum octane rating your vehicle manufacturer recommends.

For help identifying the type of gasoline your engine needs, come by Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists in Riverside.

what our customers say

Where do i start.. Wednesday afternoon 3pm before Thanksgiving on way home to Phoenix, car goes into limp mode, got referred to Protrans. Called them they agreed to take a look. Diagnosed, parts ordered and Throttle Body replaced and road tested. So very excited to know that there are still Honest shops out there that actually care about their clients. Highly recommend Protrans.

Very friendly! They checked our car and gave us professional recommendations for free! Will surely go back to them when next oil change needed.

Went in for transmission repair, after diagnosing the problem they told me I didn't need a full rebuild saving me well over $1,000.00. They found some safety issues I wasn't aware of and I had them take care of all of them. The truck is running great! Thank you Protrans.

Jeff, Matt and Hayley and the team at Protrans did an incredible job and went above and beyond for us. We had a one of a kind, 1970 Ford Chinook Motor Home that made it down to Joshua Tree from Homer Alaska. It sat during the pandemic and we finally rescued her almost 3 years later. She did not deal with the transition to desert life smoothly and was leaking badly and ran terribly. We had her towed to Riverside and found Protrans from a referral from another shop. The team at Protrans rebuilt the transmission and went through the engine to get us back on the road without breaking our budget. Jeff was good about communicating and Matt even drove over the day after we picked it up to help assess some issues that came up on the way home. Can't say enough about the professionalism, care, and service we received and would recommend them to anyone for all car repairs!
