If you own a car, you probably already know that regular maintenance is important. Not only can proper maintenance prevent costly or potentially dangerous car-related disasters, but it’ll help extend the life of your car.

If you’ve ever wondered what those three numbers on the fuel pump mean, 87, 89, and 91 or some similar variation, you’re not alone.
