What You Should Know About Unleaded 88

Over the last couple of years, you may have heard of an alternative for refueling your vehicle called Unleaded 88.

Unleaded 88 consists of 88% octane and 15% ethanol. Unleaded 88 has been around for a few years and can be used in any vehicle that is 2001 or newer, however, it is always best practice to consult your dealer or owner’s manual before using.

Unleaded 88 gets its additional octane from the extra 5% ethanol that is added. While it does have additional octane, this does not necessarily guarantee that it will give you more power or better milage.

The higher the octane, the less prone gasoline is to pre-ignition and that is why the higher compression and higher performance engines require a higher-octane fuel.

Contact your local Energy Salesperson for all your fuel related questions. We know there are multiple choices for gas and oftentimes can be confusing what you should use.

As always, thank you for your continued business.
