Adaptive timing

Does the 2013 v6 have adaptive timing like the gt for higher octane fuel?

But a tuner will take real advatage of the higher octane.

Most that have switched to a higher octane with the V6, and no tune, have said the higher price for the fuel was not worth the minimal performance increase the stock box/tune compensated for.

My mpg went up by about 5 with the intake and granny driving. Past 70 it burned really fast. As in I had to get to a gas station faster.

Premium may burn cleaner and faster due to combustion but it just sips away of you go above the 70-75 mark. I went back to regular till I can buy a tuner.

Actually higher octane has a slower burn and combustion to avoid detonation

What about a v6 with no tune and a no tune CAI?

worth it?

It was my understanding that 93 octane fuel is more dense. Yet it combusts easier so the engine is doing less work with what it has, yielding the mpg gains.

High compression engines use it I suspect because it can hold more before combusting. I know these two statements are either correct or far from, so teach one about gasoline.

Also, my lag did go away some and it had less issues engine wise. I pay extreme attention to my car. It did benefit but until I'm tuned, I'll leave it at 87.

9 more horsepower and a cleaner engine internals wise. That's about all I got out of it and 5 more mpg around town.

5 more mpg in town?!

that's well worth it for a DD... IMHO

should I drain my tank of 87 before switching to 91?

Yes. It'll take about 2 tanks to fully get in the system though. Least my logic. Run it down to the gas light. Or empty. Preferably not empty or you'll be pushing the heavy thing uphill both ways lol then the tank will have 91/93 and the 87 mixed in there. Burn that tank then use the 91/93 and it should be in there and set in the fuel lines.

I used shell or bp. They have 93 octane and aren't overpriced like chevron. Least that's how it is in Alabama.
