If it's on the site it's good. They are required to label ethanol gas, so if there is no 10-15% ethanol label you are good.

This is true. I did notice a 1 or 2 MPG increase, but that's about it.

Thank you! This sounds like a good rule to follow. Instead of tanking with the 87 ill stick to the 91. I just want my baby happy 😃

And it's still a valid point. Not everyone runs a tune in their Mustang, so 87 octane works perfect for their daily driving habits.

Now, I still run 93 of course. Mileage sucks with 4.30's 24mpg hwy
4.30s? Oh my!
Crazy awesome mod list, btw, what kind of numbers are you getting from all that?

I haven't been able to do any track testing or dyno yet. Tuning has been slow but steady and there's a couple of things I have left to do to the car. I just ordered the JPC breather kit to keep all the oil out of my intake and then I have to install my finned differential cover and swap gear oil. Then I'll put on my DR's and I'll be ready to do WOT datalogging for my tuner. Oh, I'll likely get a dyno after that. Not necessarily for numbers, but to calculate the best shift points for each gear. From there, I'll head to the local 1/8th mile track for some shake down passes. If all goes well, I'll drive the 100 miles for some passes down the 1/4 mile.

So, I am now eating my words. I ran 2 tanks of 93 then put 87 in, and I'm now realizing there is definitely a feelable difference.

I noticed it on my daily commute. There is an extremely short on-ramp that leads into fast moving traffic.

When you punch it, it goes. Excuse my lack of scientific evidence, but the car had more balls. A noticeable amount of ballage is added.

Placebo effect my friend. There is no way you will feel a noticeable increase in power when it's just 2-3 HP. Five HP at most. Now if you're tuned it's a different story. If not tuned, save your money.

Not yet, I've always described it as better throttle response more than a significant gain in HP. You obviously won't have gains comparable to a tune but there is some.

This is what I thought when everyone was going on about it.

I didn't think about my last fillup until this morning after I had to stomp on it. I was left thinking "where's the rest?" then I remembered I was back on 87.

I'm more than confident I'd be able to tell the difference in a blind test. Pepsi challenge.

fuel

So after reading these posts I tried 93. I noticed an instant drop in MPG and throttle seems sluggish. I'm going back to 89.

Impossible to have a negative effect on throttle response! I can see if you went to a lower grade like 85 rather than 87 but going from 89-93 and u say sluggish throttle response? Sorry that's bull****!!! Go troll somewhere else!
