Lincoln says the base MKZ, powered by a 3.5-liter V-6, and the new-for-2011 MKZ Hybrid, which uses a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, are engineered to run on 87-octane regular gas. lists the type of fuel required for each available engine in the Snapshot box at the top of the opening page for every vehicle report in the Research section. The fact that some engines require premium gas, which typically costs 20 cents or more more per gallon than regular, is something that shoppers may overlook in the showroom — and salespeople may not disclose upfront.
