So, the short answer is that yes which fuel grade you use matters very much. And as for what kind of gas your Nissan Frontier takes, you can use regular unleaded gas.
The difference between the fuel grades is how much octane they have in them. Premium gas has the highest octane content, while regular unleaded has the least. We should mention that most Nissans will perform a little better with premium gas—even though they’re designed to use regular.
For the most part, you can put premium into a car that uses regular unleaded, and there won’t be any issues—there may even be benefits! When you add regular unleaded fuel to a car that needs premium, that is when there are issues.
Picking the correct gas is vital to get the most out of your Nissan Frontier. Just as important, though, is choosing the right car insurance for it.
