Why does everyone keep saying they are running higher octane? What am I missing? The manual says 87, the dealer says 87, GLS says 87. I can see 89 if you can't get 87 for some reason. It's not liek running a higher octane will wreck your engine...just less performance and a slightly higher cost. So whats the deal with this?
The manual says MINIMUM 87 OCTANE. And actually my dealer recommended running 89. But given the choice between 87 and 93, I am running the 93. I run 89 when available. But like snowmanf7sp said, somtimes 92 is your only choice.
Thanks guys. We are going up the Thursday after Christmas and I was just wondering what you guys were doing.
I always run 89 and if I come to a station that only has 87 (which is quite common at the one horse towns in the middle of nowhere) then at the next stop I put 92 in. If I'm going to be running lakes I put 92 in for the extra safety margin.
