Hey,
Can the new Pathy run on regular fuel or does it require premium? Nissan's site specifically states that Supercharged Xterra requires premium, but nothing about Pathfinder. Also, Edmunds says regular fuel for Pathy, which consumerguide says premium.
What does the manual say?
TIA

Probably premium is the "preferred" fuel for performance or economy. This is the case in my wife's Odyssey. It runs fine on 87, but really gets better pick up and mileage with 91 or higher.

Here is a link to the online version of the 2002 Owner's manual. Look in section 9-4 for fuel requirements and it is spelled out for you there. Hope this helps!

Exectly what I was looking for!! You're right, the manual says to use premium. It also says that regular can be used, but premium will give best performance.
Thanks!
