I've always filled up with premium and Alpinestars carries a pretty vast collection of sizes.

Probably 87 octane gas. Your owner's manual should cover this. Putting 93 octane in when it calls for 87 doesn't do any good, and does in fact do some marginal bit of harm. But like I said, consult your manual to see for sure

This is correct. Don't be fooled into thinking that higher octane is somehow "premium".
Read the owners manual and use the recommended gas and not higher.

I don't have the owners manual, but I'm going to put regular gas, is what everyone seems to say when I tried to search for answers.
