It is always okay to switch between regular and premium gasoline. With that said, it depends highly on the make of your engine whether or not your car will actually benefit at all from the use of premium gasoline. Make sure to look in your car's manual before you switch to see if your car can benefit for from the switch.

If you try to run it on regular it might start to knock, spike and run poorly. This may even damage the engine.If you really feel the urge to experiment, you can put some regular gas in and see what happens.Start with 1/4 of regular and 3/4 of premium.If it runs OK on that, even on hard acceleration, try 1/2 premium, 1/2 regular.If it runs OK on that, even on hard acceleration, try 1/4 of premium and 3/4 of regular.If it runs OK on that, even on hard acceleration, try all regular.
