How to choose the right fuel for your vehicle

PG91 is suitable for most modern cars. PG95 is a premium grade gasoline appropriate for higher-performance cars. If you’re not sure of your vehicle’s correct octane rating, check the owner’s manual or ask the manufacturer or dealer where you purchased the vehicle. Sometimes, the recommended fuel can be found on a sticker inside the filling cap.

In most cases, a vehicle will not benefit from using an octane higher than recommended by the manufacturer. Unless you’re driving a performance vehicle, you’re unlikely to see any improvements by using fuel with a higher octane, and you will pay more for no additional benefit.

Using a lower-octane grade petrol than that recommended by the manufacturer risks long-term damage to the engine of your car. So, there is a chance that using a low-octane fuel in an engine that requires a higher octane will damage the engine, whereas there is no harm in using a higher-octane grade than specified.

Learn about octane numbers

PG95 is a 95 Research Octane Number (RON) octane grade gasoline, and PG91 is a 91 RON octane grade gasoline.

Mostly, fuels with a higher octane rating are used in high-compression engines, which have higher performance requirements. The higher the octane number, the more compression the fuel can withstand before detonating.

Specifically, the octane number relates to the engine’s compression ratio, which is an indication of the anti-knock ratio of the fuel that determines the amount of compression the fuel can handle before it ignites. The Anti-Knock Index (AKI) is the average of a fuel’s RON and Motor Octane Number (MON): (R+M)/2.

RON and MON are determined by using a special engine with a variable compression ratio, and comparing the knock qualities of a given fuel to that of reference fuels.
