I started off running 89 Shell or Exxon only for many moths following purchase.

On a recent out-o-state trip, I accidently filled up [29.8 gallons] with 87 Shell. Didn't realise it until I looked at the printed reciept. I wasn't too concerned and was waiting for less economy, some noises at idel with a not-as-smooth idle and whatnot.

I got pretty much identical MPG, no noticeable power loss/gain across the bandwidth, no noises at idle out of the ordinary.... nothing.

I now fill up with 87 octane every third fill, with 89 the other times. I do throw in a can of Seafoam every forth fill [app. once every two months or so] under 89 octane rating. It's something I've been doing for almost ten years.... habitual.

Truck was sold today [5/19]. I got an offer I couldn't turn down. I had no more need for a pickup so I cut it loose. About to purchase a '14 Jeep SRT8 this week.

Grub out!
