Use clean, fresh unleaded gasoline
with a minimum Antiknock Index of 90.
The Antiknock Index is posted on ser-
vice station pumps. The octane rating
of a gasoline is a measure of its resis-
tance to detonation or "knocking." The
Antiknock Index is an average of the
Research Octane Number (RON) and
the Motor Octane Number (MON) as
shown in the table.
Octane Rating Method
(RON + MON)
Use minimum of 90 octane gaso-
line only to prevent severe en-
If engine "knocking" or "ping-
ing" occurs, use a different
brand of gasoline of a higher
octane rating. If this condition is
allowed to continue it can lead
to severe engine damage.
Gasoline quality is important.
Fuels of low quality or not meet-
ing standard industry specifi-
cations may result in unsatis-
factory performance. Operating
problems that result from the
use of poor quality or nonrecom-
mended fuel may not be covered
under your warranty.
