    For your information premium vs regular will always be a debate its like syntec vs mineral oil.

    If you dont know the oil filter is the same as a qr25,qg18,vq35,vq37...

    91 all day every car. 87 is piss poor gas and if you dont have en electric motor getting you going you're just gonna burn through more gas when you push the car. Dont flip flop though, use one or the other and let the engine learn the fuel trim. I strongly recommend warming up the engine I find I get way better gas millage when I let my car warm up for quite a while.

    I've filled up my Micra with premium and found no significant improvement.
    The engine still knocks with either fuel type.
    With 91, the Micra started up on higher revs sooner than the 87.

    I'm rolling with what the user manual calls for. I bought this car from its original owner, he used to run our Magna fuel (87 octanes). I think our (as in Mexico) user manual calls for 91 octanes, Wich would be our Premium fuel. Yup, we only have those 2 options. The on board computer had a 11.3 or so km/l average, ever since I started using premium fuel it climbed to 13.8 or so. Besides, our Premium fuel is sulphur free, unlike Magna. Engine's cleaner, O2 sensors should live longer. All this, of course, might only apply on my country. Recently we had a Premium fuel shortage, and I definitely felt a lack of performance, nothing huge or dramatic, but it was there.

    The only real difference is no ethanol in 91+. Ethanol is terrible for metal parts, rubber, emissions systems, etc. yet the Micra is made for 87. Put whatever you want in it except Diesel.
