I've run premium since the beginning so I can't do a comparison. But I've had no knocking or shudder or any other problem reported here so I'll stick with premium. I figure this is a 12:1 compression engine that's gonna like the anti-knock compounds in higher octane gas. And the manual says as much. With 2500 miles on the clock I'm getting about 36 MPG in 90:10 highway-city driving, flat roads, low traffic, 60 to 65 depending on conditions.
