I can tell you right now that at least 80% of people leasing will be using regular grade.mentioning whether you are leasing or buying will help, my guess is we'll see more leases using regular grade
I hope you have money on Shell or companies like it that are investing into renewable sources.There is a reason the OM recommends premium fuel. It has better anti knock qualities. Higher detergent levels. More complete burn. Less likely to cause spark plug deterioration. And most important ......... Yield baby .......... Yield ! The more premium sold, the higher the gross profit to the refiners. The more the refiners make, the greater the dividends paid. My retirement portfolio is heavy in gas and oil. I want a new fishing boat like this .......... View attachment 439
The recommendation to use 91/93 octane isn't made by the Genesis/Hyundai engineering dept. just for the hell of it. There is a sound reason behind it. Want to cheap out and buy 87 oct ? Go for it. It's your car, your car's engine. Keep in mind that should there be any kind of catastrophic powertrain failure while the car is covered by the 100K warranty, a snapshot of the ECU will show the load conditions the engine was operating under at that point in time. Odds are that Genesis/Hyundai will also require a fuel sample. There will be no way to hide the fact that the car has been fed a diet of junk regular. ymmv
This is why I'd never buy a pre owned, leased vehicle. If cutting corners on gas, then what other corners are being cut?I can tell you right now that at least 80% of people leasing will be using regular grade.
If it causes problems they aren't likely to show up within the lease term.
Increased compression requires higher octane fuel. Sure, it will run on lesser grades, but performance will be reduced because the computer will pull timing to prevent knocking.It makes me wonder as I already noted above.. since the G70 uses the same engine as the 2019+ Santa Fe but just has a bit higher compression and it only gets a few mores horses (torque the same) which is why it calls for the 93 Octane, its almost like to me a marketing gimmick where they have to engineer the engine with a higher compression to call for 93 as it gives the IMPRESSION its a luxury level car that NEEDS the PREMIUM fuel..
Wonder how it would seem from a marketing perspective and IMPRESSION if Genisis , BMW , Ferrari.. etc... would market their cars where they state their high performance car only needs 87 octane fuel.. Hmmmmmm.. I wonder...
