87 with ethanol, whether towing or not. At first I used 89 when towing, but tried 87 and it performed just as well. Didn't notice any pinging, and fuel economy seemed to be the same.

That said,...

On my 2011 there are no grease zerks on the ball joints, tie rod ends... everything is sealed. Why would they charge you to grease something if there are no zerks to grease?

The shift interlock solenoid is in the dash, directly behind the steering wheel. It keeps the shift lever locked in Park unless the brake pedal is depressed, preventing it from dropping...

I did the mod last October and just changed out the filter, a Purolator C25869. I haven't noticed a decrease in airflow, but it was kind of dirty so it's doing its job.

Sometimes a plastic grocery bag on the highway will blow under the truck and stick to the exhaust pipe or muffler, creating a strange smell when it melts and burns off.

I would definitely check one plug on each cylinder to see if any are fouled. If one of the cylinders shows signs of oil fouling, I think you'd have a good chance of it being a warranty-repairable...
