I used octane booster once. Bad idea. Somehow it messed up my O2 sensor and my truck wouldn't run . But, sometimes when i like to be generous, I'll use 89 lol. It doesn't make any real difference, I just to like be nice to my truck sometimes lol.

Was using 87 until the last tank, I switched to 91 with no ethanol. Did this to rid the system of 87 in preparation for the Predator with a 91 tune.

What is best. 89 with 10% ethonal or 87 w/o ethonal? I now use 87 w/o. Just wondering if I should be using the 89.
