What kind of gas does a BMW 335i take?
I recently bought a used BMW 335i, but the seller had already put a full tank of gas in for me and I forgot to ask what kind it uses—what kind of gas does a BMW 335i take?
Answer provided by
The kind of gas a BMW 335i—along with the other models in this series—takes premium gasoline with an octane rating of 91 or higher. It is one of the few models that BMW requires to use premium gasoline rather than simply recommending it.
Premium gasoline usually has additional additives and is better balanced when compared to standard gasoline—and the higher octane rating corresponds to the BMW 335i’s higher performance engine.
Using the wrong fuel type in your BMW can lead to worsening fuel efficiency and may even damage your engine—damage that won’t be cheap to repair. If you’re ever unsure of what fuel to use in your vehicle, consult your owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Adhering to the manufacturer’s recommendations is one of the easiest ways to keep your vehicle working as it should and will help keep you safer when driving. Take that protection one step further with the right insurance policy using licensed car insurance and super app, Jerry.
