Most of the time I fuel up, the only two options are 87 and 89 octane (89 being ethanol). I dont like to run ethanol so I usually end up putting in 87. Will this have an effect on my performance or do any damage to the engine, pinging or so on?

I have always heard 91 is the minimum recommended. When I am local there is a place that has 93 that I am pretty religious about using.

95 is the correct fuel. You don't need 98 or 100.

We have a spot that sells 110, 6.49 a gallon, no, I don't need it - but I do love it and so does the DX! ....................Maybe I do need it!

STEELERS suck WHO-DEY! J/K!:)

I would look for another gas station my friend, 87 is not a good choice. Do a search on this topic you will find some very interesting posts.
I use nothing but BP 93 or Shell V-Power which is 93 also.

Wow, we have to pay 6.8 for a gallon of super 95.
I remember the last time I was in California (2003 I think). A gallon was around $1. What's the price for a gallon now?
