#10 of 39 Which replacement tires for 2002 I-35?
Sep 30, 2004 (9:03 am)
My local; Americas tire dealer states that i would be very happy with FALKON tires. Says size 225/50 R17 93H ok. price would befor 4 tires out the door $558. They are rated 420 AA. Any opinions about this size or mfg.
In addition, i just had brakes checked and with 40,000 miles on car mechanic stated that still have about 50% left on all tires. Has anyone ever heard of a car going so long on original brakes. I am not complaining you understand! Just questioning.
#11 of 39 Premium Fuel

I'm an owner of 2004 I35. Different sources display different recommendation for fuel. For example, Edmunds.com says "regular unleaded fuel", but Infiniti recommends "premium fuel". I kind of confused. What fuel to use? Thanks.

Read the owners manual that came with the car. It states you should premium fuel, but occasional use of regular if premium is not available is ok. For best performance and mpg, premium is the recommended fuel.

Robikjan, my manual 2004 I35 and my dealer recommended regular gas. I tried super a few times (which is recommended for "improved" performance) and I did not notice any improvement. Stay with regular!

The Infiniti web site indicates premium fuel as the fuel requirement under specifications for the 2004 I35. I have a 2002 I35, which is identical mechanically as the 2004, and the manual states on page 10-3; "Use unleaded premium gasoline with an octane rating of at least 91 AKI (Anti-Knock Index) number (Research octane number 96). If unleaded premium is not available, unleaded regular with an octane rating of at least 87 AKI (Research octane number 91) can be used. However, for maximum performance, the use of unleaded premium gasoline is recommended." So, nowhere in any documentation from Infiniti is regular or mid-grade fuel recommended. If premium is not available, then it's ok to use regular as a substitute, but they make a point that the recommended fuel is premium grade.

When I bought my car my dealer told me to use mid grade but the car kept knocking whenever under strain of hills and such. But the owners manual says 91 octane and that means premium. I now just fill up with the premium and have had no more problems with the knocking. If you aren't knocking at regular or mid-grade go for it, but I live in an area with rolling hills and really noticed the difference when I switched it to the recommended gas of 91 octane. Some cars just need the extra octane for their performance, my husband's Audi also requires premium.

Beyond knocking....does anyone notice any MPG improvement by using premium versus regular? Some cars I understand have improved MPG by using premium..hench making up for the price difference of the fuel.
Three old arguments:
1) Knocking / pinging (I gather that is depends on hills or other strains)
2) Performance (doesn't sound like it from others here)
3) MPG (no mention here on the boards)
#19 of 39 Cabin Filter
Sep 16, 2005 (7:58 pm)
FYI. The Nissan Maxima (2000-2003) and the I30/I35 (2000-) use the same cabin filter. The part # is 999M1-VP004. I just picked up a filter for my 2004 I35 at the local Nissan dealership for $50.
