AWD Fuel Requirements

Post by Mr Magoo » Tue Mar 15, 2011 2:52 am

I am looking to buy another used Vibe. I thought I had read somewhere that the 03' and 04' AWD models required the use of Premium fuel. Is this true?

I have an 04 AWD had it since may 2004. Premium fuel is not only NOT Required but also not Recommended. It wont hurt anything but maybe your wallet and could cause excess carbon build up.You will be fine with 87 Regular Unleaded.
