Any Mini Cooper produced in more recent model years takes premium gasoline with an octane rating of at least 91. The higher the octane rating, the better your vehicle’s performance will be.
That said, the kind of gas older model Mini Coopers may be able to take is regular unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of only 87—for this reason, it is always recommended that you consult your owner’s manual if you are unsure of which fuel type to use.
Using the wrong type of fuel in your Mini Cooper can result in diminished performance and may even damage your engine, leading to costly repairs.
