I don't know if a blown head gasket would do that over a period of time? Just guessing here.

yeah most of the time 87 octane. i just couldn't afford the 93 when i was already spending $500 a month in gas. but this time around it won't be the daily driver so it will only see 93 for now on when she gets rebuilt

I seriously doubt it was the fuel. A stock 5.7 hemi will run fine on 87 octane. They have knock sensors so the won't detonate on 87 octane. A stock hemi will run fine on 89 octane.
