Run 87 or 93 and stay with it. So your computer is not constantly adjusting.

hmm I do have an audible tick or click noise that I hear at idle.... seems to come from the left side of the motor.... I'll try 93 for a while & see if it helps

Thanks for the info!

Had a master tech tell me to avoid premium fuel at all costs. BAD FOR HEMI!

Owners M. recommends 89. I'm using 87 with no issues.

Manual calls for 87octane and what I run majority of the time if I take it on a long trip sometimes I fill'r up with Premium , but I can't tell any difference, keep her tune d and she should be fine on 87
