I run 87. If your vehicle is designed for 87 octane and you use 89 or 91, then all you are doing is lowering your power and gas mileage. Now, if you have a tune designed for higher octane, or are getting ping, etc..then you would want to increase the octane.

My owners manual calls for 89 octane. Therefore I use 89. Will try 93 at some point to see if it makes a milage difference. In my wife's 04 Toyota V8 going up in octane increases milage.

I went from 87 to 89 and managed to get a couple more miles to the gallon.

Normally I would get a diesel, but I got tired of paying diesel fuel prices. Wouldn't make sense to go to gas unless I could run 87. I made sure of that before I bought the truck.
