Octane Question

This is most likely a dumb question, but I just bought a new GT/CS and I know this car recommends 91 but is able to use 87. I had a 2000 V6 before this so i have not dabbled with premium fuel. What do you guys recommend?

If you run 87 with our boost and rev it high all the time or run it hard you can damage then engine.

Run91 or 93. Its worth the extra little bit of cash to protect your car.

Yea spending a max of $4-$5 per tank on better gas can never hurt.
