I'm going to finish out my tank and pay closer attention to the sound. Mine has sounded more throaty since the fall and I just figured it was the factory exhaust having been broke-in. Sounds cool. At fill up, I'll try the 89 and listen and feel. Wouldn't hurt to try and check.

I did my first fill on 89 (out of habit, I had a fuel card so should have used mid grade) then I read in the owners handbook that it is recommended to use 91/mid grade so my 2nd fill (today) Ipaid the extra 8c a litre $7 a tank and will see how it goes.

I got premium for the price of regular last week because the gas station was out of regular. It is very hard for me to tell if I gained anything for mpg as the temps went from colder last week to WAY above seasonal so less letting it warm up and such, also my dirivng habit was a bit off this week too. From what I have been told ALL 91 in CANADA has 5% ethanol, not sure about south of the border. Also from what I have been told ethanol has nothing to do with the winter as it does with keeping cron farmers in business and the gov't making money, The goverment makes alot of money off of farming/farmers, a while ago farmers were complaining about not making any money, thats whent he gov't decided to put ethanol in gasoline, they make money off of selling the ethanol product to the gas companies and then make half (or so) in tax on the fuel itself.

That is just what I have been told but it makes perfect sense to me, I was pretty pissed to find out 91 even has ethanol because I have been running 91 in my sled with an ethanol resistor for the fuel system that isnt supposed to have ethanol running through it with that resistor.....

That's pretty messed up...hate how money runs our nations now a days.

91 isnt easy to find down here... 95% of stations carry 87,89,93. Only at like a Delta Sonic you can find some off-octanes (I seriously saw a 103 on a pump before...daym). Down south they even use an economy octane of 85 sometimes...i'd never put that in my truck.

Down here sunoco and I think racetrack used to have several choices, like 95-105 octanes on the pump. I guess they did away with that within the past 5-10 years, I haven't seen that in a long time. There'd be like 8 buttons on the pump lol.
