How to Choose the Right Fuel for Your Car?

Generally, gasoline 91 is suitable for most modern cars. However, for high-performance vehicles, gasoline 95 is the optimal choice. If you are unsure whether your choice is correct or not, you can refer to the car owner’s manual or inquire from the dealer about the appropriate fuel type. Additionally, you can check the efficiency card affixed to the car’s window by the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization, which provides consumers with essential vehicle information.

It is also worth noting that most vehicles will not benefit from using fuel with a higher octane number than recommended, except for high-performance cars. Using fuel with an octane number lower than recommended can expose the vehicle’s engine to various damages.
