    Gas type for Nissan Juke

    I am considering buying a Juke but am concerned about what type of gas it needs. Dealer says regular as is ok but online reviews I have seen say it needs premium. Love the car but the gas is a real issue. Does anyone have a juke and have used only regular gas. Would like to know effects if any.

    Yes, you're suppose to use premium. I always put premium in my Juke. Can you use regular? Yes. But it is not the best for the engine. And it will cost you in performance and mileage. The extra cost in premium levels out with the extra mileage you get by using the fuel recommended for the engine. I would not recommend putting regular gas in a Juke that recommends premium.

    The blood of virgins marinated in olive oil.

    But really, it is recommended to use premium in the Juke and advisable for any car that uses a turbo to help prevent knock. If you plan on modding it, eventually a tune will likely come into play and flat out require a specific minimum octane level.

    It is possible to use low grade fuel, but just don't expect the same performance from the car
    Upgrades/Mods:
    Injen SRI
    Injen 3" Catback Exhaust
    Kiwi bluetooth OBDII adapter connected to Torque

    Plans: IC Hardpipes, DV+Chargepipe upgrade, GTM Rebuilt turbo (tentative on info release), Injen Downpipe, 2nd Cat delete, Upgraded fuel system, Nav console replacement with Android tablet, Wheels/rims, HID lights, Fog lights, LED light replacement, Intercooler, Stainless steel brake lines

    Premium with an octane rating of 91 or higher recommended for the best performance.
    Regular for the penny pinchers with a noticable decrease in performance.

    When you say Dealer do you mean the sales guy or the shop? The book says premium. Ask the dealer to put it in writting and see what he says then. As everyone else has stated go with premium. I do not know which version you are considering but in 20000 miles my average has been 25.8 with an SL AWD.

    It's the price of a coffee in difference...go with the higher octane.
