I run 93 octane. I'm sure 87 would be fine but hey why not?

When I took the Hazmat tech training, part of it was going to the Port of Miami where a lot of hazardous materials and fuels are received. We also went to a fuel distribution company to learn about tanker trucks. At the training they told us that the fuel when it arrives at the port on the tanker ship differs only by octane. All the company specific additives are added at the port at each company's facility. So Shell might have a receiving site at the port, receive their fuels, add the chemicals, then truck it out.

Hope that helps.

Oh and I do as the manual say's 89 octane in my truck.
