How Many Kia Models Recommend Premium Fuel? 

When you stop at your local gas station to fill up your tank, you will typically have three options – 87-octane, 89-octane and 93-octane. Most Kia owners can stick to Regular 87-Octane fuel when they fill up. The only Kia model that recommends the use of Premium 93-Octane fuel is the track-tuned 2021 Kia Stinger. With Premium 93-Octane fuel, the Kia Stinger will maximize performance at every turn with a pair of turbocharged engine options. 

What Are the Differences Between Regular and Premium Fuel? 

Many drivers may not know the differences between regular and premium fuel – an important distinction for drivers who want to optimize performance and fuel economy. The fuel grade is based on its octane rating – which is a measurement of how resistant the fuel is to knocking or prematurely igniting in your engine – and the higher the octane rating the cleaner the performance. In most states, 87-octane is the regular grade and will employ more additives and 91- and 93-octane are premium grades. Regular octane fuel will perform well in a majority of vehicles. Premium octane fuel is typically recommended or required for vehicles with turbocharged engines – as it will burn cleaner and more efficiently to improve performance.
