The reality is that many drivers are spending hundreds of millions of dollars each year for higher octane gas they do not need. Is High Octane Gas Worth It? It seems like too many people are under the impression that buying higher octane "premium" gas will boost engine performance for their vehicle.

By Tom Smith If ‘game changer’ isn’t a word you want to see attached to a pick up truck - don’t read this blog. The all-new 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Pro is just that. Crazy torque, speed and all-out work flexibility will make this bad-ass electric truck the new standard for the best-selling vehicle in America. What’s New About The Ford F-150 Lightning Pick Up? The Ford commercial says it best. Aiming for 775 lb.ft. of torque, 0 - 60 mph in 4 seconds and a cargo space revolution is why this electric truck will finally convince the public of the importance of electric vehicles.
