I've run synthetic [Amsoil 5W-20] since literally day one [I drained and changed both oil and filter upon bringing it home] so that's maybe why I've never experienced the notorious Hemi tick.

I too ran 89 exclusively for almost a year straight; prior to switching over to 87 every third fill recently. I've seen no difference in ANYTHING since switching over; no tic, no performance difference and no MPG change what so ever! I made up my mind just this week that I'm switching over to 87 exclusively from next fill onwards. At least until this blend goes MIA. This winter-blend fuel is pathetic for MPG on these Hemi engines.
Like I was mentioning to another member on the phone recently, I've usually lost close to 2PMG at worst
in the past on previous rides with winter-blended fuel. My MPG has dropped BELOW 3PMG on this truck with NO noteable driving conditions and/or habit changes. These Hemi engines and winter-blend fuel simply do not like one another..... regardless of octane grade.
The worst I've ever experienced, period!
I dunno.... maybe it's the fuel rather than the Hemi engines?
