Since I learned on this forum that you're supposed to run a minimum of 89, I will always use 89 on my truck. I've used 87 previously with no problems, but if Chrysler recommends 89 then it's 89 I'll use. As far as ticking, I don't hear any ticking at all coming from the engine, but I did a tune up a couple of months back. I wouldn't be too worried about the ticking noise unless it turned into knocking noise.

I guess I am a bit confused by the talk of the Hemi ticking and somehow this being normal. I don't think a properly running engine should be ticking unless there is a problem. Why doesn't Dodge do something about this?
