I have used 87 in my 5.7 because the 89 selection was out of service and I noticed poorer fuel economy when using it. Switched back to 89 and saw improvement. I would also recommend using a good or superior quality of gas. TopTier gas is a good website however some say this is a marketing ploy. I do know from a personal experiance that lower grade or no-name gas station have made the engine run less than desireable.

I run the 89 in my hemi, and try to stop at stations that sell lots of gas, because when the gas is stored in the tanks they take on water,so thats why I also put a can of sea foam in about once a month when I fill up, this stuff rocks, jessman

MegaCab: How much of a milage difference was there from 87 to 89. I only get 9.5 in town in my 2003. My dad gets the same milage in his 2007 (same truck). It's usually 10 cents more a gallon, but if it adds a couple miles per gallon, it would be worth it....I think. I may have to do some math first. My head hurts now.
