Feel free to lol at my silly question... but then help me out with an answer if you don't mind!!!

cheers,

mariano

as sacicons said, regular 87 octane gas should be fine unless you are boosted[sm=badbadbad.gif][sm=bananallama.gif]

I always keep it cheap in my civic... when I go higher octane I dont ever see a difference in performance and my fuel gauge seems to lie about how much is left in the tank

Only cars that use higher compression really need the premium gas. But they say that premium cleans the engine and blah blah blah, but it would run just fine with the cheapest.
