All pump gas is unleaded, if your car is stock you can get away with using regular.

But is premium recommended? Is it better on the engine?

My owners manual recommends 87 octane. Only reason to pay more is if you have your Care tuned for premium for more performance. So I would say save the money and buy regular from a quality gas station until you get a tuner!

Yes it is better, the car will run better and your mpg should increase. Even if 87 were recommended premium would be better for the car despite what some people think.

With the price of gas though the extra mpg might not be worth the extra cost.

Re: gasoline

With the older mustangs either is fine,the newer vehicles however are so precisely tuned to one octane, the mpgs will increase with premium but that's not why I would run it...apparently the lower octanes are more prone to gumminess and whatnot so I prefer the higher octane...that's just me though..if gas keeps going up I may change my mind...

I thought the newer ones could calibrate for different octane levels?

Some vehicles do but not all.
