Default Re: Gasoline - Regular, Mid Grade, or Premium?

Given the compression ratio of the engine and the electronic management of OBDII, 87 octane should be just fine. Everything I have read over the years bears this out. Spending extra money for higher octane fuel in the stock motor is not going to get you anything, except less money in your pocket. The oil companies are working very hard on that part already without your assistance. 87 octane hit $3.30 a gallon here yesterday and I'm sure it is higher elsewhere in this country.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
