Is Premium Fuel Necessary For The 2023 Ford Maverick Hybrid ?
The manufacturers demand for high-octane fuel is actually due to components in a vehicles fuel system
being designed to operate at their highest potential using a high-octane fuel.
It is worth the cost difference only if your vehicle requires higher-octane gas, like medium-grade or premium.
While in some cases, premium grade fuel might just be recommended, your Ford uses advanced engine
technology which runs on ordinary fuel with no problems or engine damage.
The Mav-trunklet trucks are designed to be fueled with mid-grade 89 RON, for instance, but during the summer
if I am towing, and since my engine has more than 150K miles, I am using 93.
Ford notes you can run regular gas in a 2022 Ford Maverick, but performance may be compromised when towing or operating in warmer temperatures.
In our 75-mph real-world highway fuel economy test, the 2022 Ford Maverick XLT Hybrid returned 30 miles per gallon
which is three miles per gallon lower than the EPAs number.
