  • Nb Miata gas type?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'll ask anyways since I'm a total noob. What kind of gas is required for my 2002 Miata SE? 1.8 motor. Thanks in advance.

    I believe Mazda calls for minimum 91 octane.

      unless the vvt motor is different, I didn't think the miata care what fuel was in it.

        Premium is recommended, but it can run on lower grades. The ECU can pull timing when it detects knock (via the knock sensor), but you will notice lower performance. IIRC, premium is recommended especially for those in warmer climates. I would prefer to run premium.
