Odd, as I started watching it before posting. Several adds before the story, but it did work.

Fundamentally, the conclusion as I stated in my original post is that premuim in a car not designed for it is playing into the marketers hands. I drive a Lexus RX as well as our Focus and do use premium in it as recommended. Once filled with regular at a US gas station (the pump said premium), but the mileage dropped precipitously. Once I refilled with premium from another station, all was fine. So, for a car that needs it; great. But for those that don't, save your money.

Note there is an "expert" guy in thestory who swears by regular and runs it in his corvette. To each his own!
