Congrats! Alexus-kia on your new car!

I purchase my Gs300 on Mar 6th

Would you please check your manual for proper octane.

What color is yours?

How many Miles did your car have when you purchased?

I am really loving my car this is my dream car.

Thanks Again

this has been discussed a ton of times.i only use high test in my car and most other lexus owners do the same but you can use low octane if you want but be advised it does make your car !Removed! the timing so it dont ping and thus you lose some performance and also carbon buildup from it.

i recommend at least 89.i use 93 and when im near a sunoco then i use 94 octane.the choice is yours.

Do a search in this forum using 'octane' as a keyword and you should get a few relevant discussions - I know I've seen a couple.

The manual recomends 91, I would stick to that. The 2jz motors in our cars are higher compresssion. I've used lower with no detrimental effects. But it all depennds on the vehicles condition. If you're going to use 89 at least mix in some 91 or add some octane boost. Throw in a can of fuel injector cleaner every other tank as well. :D

As stated on a previous post, I sell the octanes that are sold at the pump. Yes the higher octanes is recommended.
