Gasoline octane story
 
I have a 2011 Laramie with the hemi. For over a year, I've been experimenting with the octanes trying to find the best for mpg and performance. Alas, I give up! It seems to always vary. Sometimes, 87 is best and sometimes 87 sucks. The same goes with the other octanes. I've come to the conclusion that it's the particular gas I fill up with and not the octane. In other words, today's fuel is horrible, and you just have to hope you filled with a good batch, no matter what the octane!!!

We have two Hemi's in the Garage plus I am on my second Hemi Ram Truck and both the Charger RT/RT and my RAM get the best gas milage out of Mid-grade. The hemi in the Charger is warmed over and my truck is stock.

Doesn't matter what I put in my truck, I consistently average 12.5mpg tank to tank. The only time it changes is when pulling my snowmobile trailer and it will drop down to 11

Wish I got 11 when I was pulling my snow trailer. I get 9.--- something.
