Premium Gasoline

What is Top Tier Gas?

TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is a premier standard for gasoline. Gasoline with lower levels of additives might meet the minimums required by the EPA, but they can have negative impacts on engine performance and vehicle responsiveness. A few years back, some of the major automakers, which you may have heard of,  BMW, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen and Audi determined that the EPA minimum detergent requirements weren’t enough to ensure optimal engine performance. So they created a higher standard called “Top Tier Detergent Gasoline”.

By Top Tier, we’re not talking about a type of gas, like unleaded or super unleaded or an octane level, like 87 or 92.  Top Tier means higher levels of detergent additives that are meant to reduce carbon deposits on fuel injectors and intake valves. These higher levels of detergent additives help prevent the build-up of engine “gunk,” which is known to reduce fuel economy and engine performance, and possibly lead to mechanical breakdown.

Why Top Tier Gas?

  • Cleaner Burning Fuel
  • Reduces Engine Deposits
  • Improves Fuel Economy
