Ram recommends 89 octane.... but does NOT require it.

Running regular [87] grade fuel will not hurt anything and your engine will run just fine.... and your wallet will love you. It will NOT void your warranty either should any injection problems or the like arrise. Why? Because 89 octane fuel is not "required" but merely "recommended" by the manufacturer.

Truth is, there are very few vehicles on the market that actually 'require' a high octane grade fuel.

Also, there's next to no consistency from gasoline marked "premium" to another marked "regular" from one pump to another [one town/city to another] so always look for the; therefore, always look at the federally mandater yellow sticker as to the exact octane rating you're pumping.

Grub out!
