87 and 89 no real differnece i used to run 93 when truck was tune. the 93 gas is really for like sport cars that use high compression engine need high octane gas so the engine does not knock which cause engine failure. if you hear it knock then you should change. Also a lower octane gas tends to build a carbon film on your cylinder heads. Usually, you won’t notice the difference in engine performance for the most part since most of your driving occurs in the city. The carbon film inside your cylinders will be confirmed if you open the engine to replace your head gasket when you rebuild your engine head or when you want to do an engine overhaul. Only then you will see what the different octane gas will do to your engine. So if you plan to keep checking your head gasket see what gas to use then you can do that. The ping that some people notice in their vehicles happens because the compression ratio changes due to the carbon build up which affects your timing chain performance.

You can get carbon buildup regardless of which octane fuel you choose. Fuel quality, driving habits, and maintainence have the greatest effect on carbon buildup.

Our 89 octane is 10% ethanol. It's 10cents cheaper than regular at 87 octane. So that's what I run, from Casey's. Good luck Doug

I have been running Exxon/Mobil 89 for the past 3 tanks, am now running Turkey Hill 89, and the last two will be Shell 89 and Shell V-Power 93. I am attempting to test out the "Top Tier" listed gasolines that are in my area. So far I like the Exxon/Mobil better than the Turkey Hill. The Turkey Hill feels sluggish when opening up, plus their pump is the only pump that has ever overflowed on me. With Exxon I was getting between 13.2 and 13.5, Turkey Hill 13.0 and 13.3 (all city driving + heavier foot than most). I can update again once I'm done with Shell.
