Thanks, yeah the summers here can get as hot as 55-60 degrees Celsius under the sun and 45 degrees in the shade. Many cars go through hell during our summers (melting interior, tire wear, etc)

Thanks for the reply. I wonder what fuel I should use for the 3.8L V6... Will probably use 95 octane for it

(Unless someone has a better suggestion)

I don't think that it makes it cleaner as much as makes it run smoother. Here's a quotation from wikipedia:


"Higher octane ratings correlate to higher activation energies: This being the amount of applied energy required to initiate combustion. Since higher octane fuels have higher activation energy requirements, it is less likely that a given compression will cause uncontrolled ignition, otherwise known as autoignition or detonation.

A fuel with a higher octane rating is less prone to auto-ignition and can withstand a greater rise in temperature during the compression stroke of an internal combustion engine without auto-igniting, thus allowing more power to be extracted from the Otto-Cycle."

More or less the same here in Kuwait. Most pumps have "Mumtaz" (92 octane) and "Super" (95 octane). We also have "ultra super" (98 octane) but I think its too much for a Jeep..

Type of Fuel in Middle East

I'm currently in Bahrain. They offer two types of fuel here, Jeddiay (or something like that) and Mumtaz. From what I understand, Mumtaz has a higher octane but the Jeep typically sticks to regular fuel (Jeddiay).

Which fuel should I request when I pull up to the gas pumps?
