I'm the happy owner of a 2019 PHEV with 6,800 miles, and recently had my first oil change. I'm very lucky that my workplace has a free onsite Level 2 charger, so between that and Level 1 charging at...

Thanks for the info! I think one reason people have told me I "should" use premium gas in my Niro is because the engine is pretty high-compression at 13:1. And for a standard Otto cycle engine that...
