I was just wondering if high test gas (aka premium at the pumps) would hert my Chev 2.8L. I know it will hert my pocket
No, it won't hert it one bit.
It won't "hert" it at all, if anything its just you pampering your car lol
It wont hurt, you're just wasting money.
High Octane doesn't mean better performance. Higher Octane gas just ignites at higher temperatures. You're not cleaning anything or getting more power from it. Some cars do have computers that can detect the octance and ajust timing to actually increase power. The 2.8 engine isn't one of them.
yea it just be a waste of money
I didn't know there was a Chevy 2.8 still running:laughing:
I got a Chevy 3.1 and it still runs just fine. Sitting in a 16 year old
car with no body rust and still has original trans, starter, and etc. The
only thing I replaced is the computer and basic tune up.
That's what happened when you change the oil and fluids every so often. Plus waxing the car is a great way to prevent body rust.
If you didn't know the 3.1 and 2.8 engines are the same engines but the 3.1 has a longer stroke.
Lot's of the 2.8s will still be runing. Most of the cars they are in, however, are rusting away. :mrgreen: the 2.8 was plenty durable. I got over 323k miles out of the one in my Citation (which was a beat up POS that was extremely reliable), and I've seen them go nearly that long in S-10s without needing rebuilds.
