Regular advice

Asked by Kerry Diamond

I RECENTLY bought a new Honda Accord V6 car. The salesman said we should run the car on premium unleaded all the time because the engine performs better and PULP causes less wear and tear. Do you agree? Also, do you achieve better fuel economy on PULP?

THE Accord is designed to run on regular unleaded and you won't have any problems with it if you do, but there are advantages with PULP. The engine's management computer needs time to adjust its settings to the new fuel so it may take a couple of fills to see any change. I wouldn't bother running it on PULP.
