    Question for ATS 3.6 performance owners

    I am going to N Carolina mtns for 5 days of driving. I normally use 87 octane gas; but for this trip, will it enhance my driving experience if I use premium gas for trip? Thanks, as always.

    I don't think so. The engine can adjust for differences in altitude. I just got back from the NC mountains myself. The car was a blast to drive until I kept getting stuck behind slow people on twisties

    Your 3.6 is designed for Regular, and there is no advantage ever for using Premium with that engine. The turbo makes a bit more power with Premium, but not the V6.
