Q: Q: what kind of fuel should I use?

asked by on

what type of fuel should I use for my 2016 Mini Cooper 1.5 liter?

My car has 100 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You should look at the fuel gauge and see if it says Premium Fuel Only. If it does, you’ll have to run premium fuel only, otherwise you can use regular gasoline. Besides that, there are a few other ways to find out what type of gas your Mini Cooper uses. Good luck.
