Yes, fuel quality affects car fuel usage. The primary reasons:

Engine cleanliness and efficiency may be maintained using high-quality petrololine and the right additives and detergents. Clean engines burn fuel more effectively, improving mileage and fuel economy.

Performance: Impurities or uneven blends in low-quality fuels can cause incomplete combustion or engine banging. Engine efficiency and fuel consumption may suffer.

Engine deposits: Low-quality fuels can deposit on fuel injectors, intake valves, and combustion chambers. Deposits can hinder fuel delivery and combustion, reducing efficiency and increasing consumption.

Carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions may increase with low-quality fuels. Inefficient combustion from low-quality petrololine can increase emissions and engine performance and fuel consumption.

Continued use of low-quality fuel can damage engines and reduce fuel efficiency. Engine deposits can slow engine performance, increasing fuel consumption and repair costs.

Overall, utilizing high-quality fuel that matches manufacturer specifications can improve engine performance, emissions, and fuel consumption.
