benfoto, premium is not required, owner manual states 87 is acceptable. I don't think I would have bought the 500 if premium was required either.Report it
Yes, you can use 87, but on the Abarth, premium (91 or higher) is recommended as it is a turbocharged car. The cost over the life of the car is negligible. On the standard 500, 87 is fine.Report it
Do you have to use premium gas?Report it
shabba2, true and I've switched my Sport to 91 too. Congrats on your awesome Abarth :)Report it
