I think this can't be emphasized enough. I bought gas from Chevron, which is supposed to be Tier 1, and was having pinging galore. I will not put any gas other than Shell, if I can help it, in my 'Stang anymore.

Re: Just pulled the trigger on a tuner :)

Just a thought... But if your car was tuned for 93 (most performance tunes are) and you put in 87 octane... Then that is most likely the cause of your pinging sound!... Personaly I have never had a problem with Chevron... It's what I used to put in my cars all the time when I was stationed down south... Now I use mostly Shell or Sunoco (no chevron stations here)...

It was an 87 tune with 87 octane. Now, I am running an 87 tune with 93 octane.

Re: Just pulled the trigger on a tuner :)

Get a different tuner... That should never happen on a 87 tune running 87... Sounds more like it was a 93 tune... If it were bad gas then it would normally take more than just one fill up to clear it out... Just saying that I've never heard of a 87 tune running on 87 and causing a pinging sound... Ususally that sound means your running the wrong octane in your car... Usually but not always...
