Does the BMW X3 Need Specials Gas?

Yes and No...

Your BMW X3 is made to last a long time. The engineering that makes up the vehicle is precise and quality and may sometimes require a special treatment. For the most part, drivers will be fine using lower-octane fuel (regular and mid-grade), but every few months or so, we recommend filling up once with premium gas to clean everything out so your X3 runs better.
