Just got my Celica a couple months ago and I just read in this post that the gts uses premium gas... I've been pumping 87 or whatever button has the 7. Did I screw up big time? Is premium the button on the far right? I think it goes 87-89-91. Is it too late to switch. Idk if previous owner uses premium too so it might be more than a couple of months. Maybe years.

Meryem.....aka ole timer

Wow, man thanks so much for the info,

now.....

what specifically in the VVT-i engine causes these babies to start burning oil? In my case
about a quart every 500 miles.

My lil babie is in Kentucky, where they don't smog. I'm looking at brining it to California where
I live and it's gotta pass smog here....

Tks bro

Sweat MPG! Why are the automatic's numbers higher, do you know?
I'm a bit of an amateur when it comes to powertrain

May or may not pass Ca smog.
The car would have to have all original smog equipment
in place and working. No CEL on or throwing any codes
and pass the tail pipe test... If it's burning too much oil that is
where they will get you is on the tailpipe
