I use regular as I find no difference in performance or mileage, only cost.

87 octane. I would run premium, but it really doesn't pay with no engine mods. And I can't afford it, lol.

just 87 octane. No need to waste money when it won't do a thing different. I do add Lucas Fuel treatment at every fill up though

93 octane during the nice summer weather with the 93 oct tune in,

during winter back to 89 oct because i take the tunner off. sometimes i put the 93 in it anyway

were a gas only 87,89 and 93 are available, no 91,..

their is only 20 cents a gallon difference between the reg and the 93 so thats about 4 to 5 $ more per fill up, not to bad
