What is premium gasoline?
Some Mazda models do have engines that can benefit from using premium gas. The 2019 Mazda CX-9 is powered by a turbocharged engine that can get a boost of about 25 horsepower when using higher-octane fuel.
The most important thing to remember when putting gas in your vehicle is that it comes from a reputable source. Modern fuels are formulated with detergents and other chemicals to help engines run as efficiently and cleanly as possible. If you make a mistake and put premium gas in your tank and regular is recommended, don’t worry about it. Just pay more attention next time.
