What Type of Fuel Do Genesis Models Require?

Using the proper fuel for your vehicle will ensure that it performs smoothly and efficiently. Each of these Genesis models with their standard and optional engines require premium fuel (octane level 91 or greater).

When you fill your tank with premium fuel, your Genesis model will perform as expected. If you happen to use regular or plus, it’ll be fine for your vehicle. However, it won’t allow your Genesis model to reach its pinnacle performance.

Using lesser grade fuel over time can also result in some engine issues and possibly damage, so it’s best to keep using premium fuel for your vehicle to ensure that it remains in great shape.

Keeping Up with Genesis Service

On top of using the proper fuel for your Genesis model, you’ll also want to ensure that you’re keeping up with its recommended maintenance. Whether it’s an oil change, a filter replacement, or even a tire rotation, regular service will help you keep your vehicle in great shape and performing at its best and most efficient.

You’ll want to keep an eye on your dashboard symbols and follow your Genesis model’s maintenance schedule to know when to bring your vehicle in to get its needs met.
