Higher grade allows engine to perform better. I like staying 93

If your not tuned I'd run the 87 octane. If you are tuned I'd run 91/93 octane for best HP results. Running 91/93 octane and no-tune isn't going to give you any noticeable performance gains. It may net you a few more miles. But for the few extra bucks you're spending, I'd say it's not worth it.

If you're not running a tune, running premium will net no gains in performance just losses in your pocket.

I'll jump on here before the money savers do. Some guys say it's not worth the extra money to run the higher grades. There is about a 25 cents difference from 87 to 93 and we have 16 gallon tanks that means it cost a mere $4.00 more to run the good stuff per 16 gallons. I will continue to run my 93 race tune for the extra $4.00!!! If $4.00 is to much you better trade that Stang in on a civic! Ha Ha Ha!!!

But I do agree with VIG no tune, no 93!!!

what about 91 octane? and even so, it seems that even for just a few extra bucks to have your engine run cleaner it's worth it.

I used 93 as a example because it cost more than the other grades so people can see the difference in cost. The $4.00 is cheaper than a Starbucks coffee!!!

Sure any grade higher will run better and cleaner than 87. No brainer.

93 octane EXxon or 93 octane BP.

and we do get 7 or 8 extra wheel horsepower using higher octane.

If you're a smoker it's a great way to start quitting. Buy gas that helps the car or buy sticks that yield cancer.

91 and 93 are still premium grade in most areas. Shell and bp use 93. I prefer it over the no name stations or overpriced chevron.

Just rehash what I said earlier...

Some c10, c16, or nitromethane!

I'll stop being a troll.

3-4 dollars per FULL tank is worth it for 93 or 91 or w/e
