Hey my 3.7 got the same treatment brother.

Matter of fact, trading the 3.7 was a spur of the moment decision, I had literally just did a $80-90 RP oil change on her.

And Ford still changed the oil

No you won't become defendant :p

93 as that is the tune I rock out with.


With just the cai I did 87. Can't chime in in anything else but from what others have said the cars do run smoother which makes sense if you run 93 stock. IMO not really worth it.

With a tune: definitely worthy tuning to the highest octane you can get IMO.

In getting the best mpgs since I've had the car after doing all my mods (cai,LTH, carted x, 93h).

My cost per mile went up .7 cents. So lets round up and make it a full penny. So rather than run an 87 tune (less "fun") I've become more efficient and the car is a "beast" now compared to the 87 tunes vs 93. I only spend $100 more every 10k miles driven to run a 93 tune vs 87.

$100 for getting the most out my pony every 10k? Yes please.

I can't believe they would sell 85! Are there any cars that require only 85?

To be honest, I'm not sure. But a lot of people get 85 just because its the cheapest,

Read that. Don't use 85 octane anymore. Maybe in your lawn mower, but most definitely not in a Mustang.

I think 85 octane is only sold in the Rocky Mountain states. I've never seen 85 octane in my life, 87 lowest.

I'm not. I'm filling her up with nothing but 91.

It's 86 in ABQ, and surrounding areas in NM. Dealer said it was fine because we're at about 5100ft. I have run it and the car ran just fine. Now that the BAMA tunes experiment is over...I will go back to regular until I see a need for anything better.

You should read the article posted on by blackendstang. I would not run anything under 87. Just saying.

I have the Shell App on my phone. Helps me find the closest Shell stations. In some areas they are rare finds. There used to be one 1 mile from my house, now it's closed. I have to travel 18 miles to my nearest Shell. One semi local Shell station is across the road from the Central PA Cabella's store. Cabella's is considered a tourist destination so this station gouges drivers. Their prices are 20-25 cents above other stations. I'm sure now they are at $4.20-4.25 for 93. I once paid $4.50 there.

There was a similar thread a while back, and the consensus was that the (standard) v6 engines (at least 2013+) have been designed to run on 87 (I believe thats the amount, of the top of my head)(the one above what inside the gas flap says not to use) is what you should go with, as with these engines (non-turbo or supercharger) anything higher will give SOME extra power but such little that you won't notice it, therefore you are basically just wasting money.

*These are not necessarily my thoughts/comments, just relating what the other thread's consensus was*

Around here these days the best is Shell, BP, and Marathon. Chevron just disappeared slowly over the years here. Before modding: Besides the dealer fill up and maybe one other time, I've only run 93 octane premium. The mileage is a hair better and it gives just a little more power without a tune.

Now, I still run 93 of course. Mileage sucks with 4.30's 24mpg hwy

After running a tank of 93, I've got to say I've noticed no difference at all.

Not worth the extra $6 per tank in my opinion. Next time I'll take the $6 I'm saving and buy a Snickers and some lotto tickets.

It's a small difference that most can't feel. I noticed about 1mpg though, consistently. The other thing is the premium fuels also contain more detergent to keep chambers clean so that's the little things that added up to why I ran it without a tune...which wasn't long.

Nice. I've tried Google for ethanol free around here. One pumping station (no store or attendant) I found and went to didn't say anything so maybe that means no ethanol??
