    Welcome! I would at least use the mid grade. I use the 92 or 93 premium only because I think it burns cleaner and should keep the engine's performance lasting longer. Also it is just something I have done for all my vehicles in the past. Not sure but I think the ATS has a higher fuel mileage range with the lower grade though. I don't know if it is accurate or not, just displays a higher number at fill ups.

    I don't see any logical reason for doing this. Go with regular, period. (Remember when regular used to mean it had lead in it?)

    You can Google something like "any reason to user higher octane" or something like that. You will find there is no benefit to going above the required octane.
