Fuel Recommendations

Print

All models equipped with a SOHC (Single Overhead Camshaft) engine are designed to operate using regular unleaded fuel with a minimum of 87 octane. All models equipped with a DOHC (Dual Overhead Camshaft) engine are designed to operate using regular unleaded fuel with a minimum of 91 octane. Mitsubishi warns that using gasoline with a lower octane rating can cause persistent and heavy knocking, and may cause internal engine damage.

If your vehicle is having problems with rough idle or hesitation when the engine is cold, it may be caused by low volatility fuel. If this occurs, try a different grade or brand of fuel.
