Always funny to hear people buying high hp performance cars and then worry about fuel millage and cost of gas. That's like marrying a stripper and being upset she gets naked for other men.

Have a great day!

No no no no NO... It's like marrying a stripper but then you complain that's she's too sexual for you and that you only need/want/desire to fork her once a month while she wants to fork all the time.

Getting naked for other men is absolutely wrong... unless she brings you home some bacon.

Wow this thread has really digressed. Knock sensors aside, a higher octane fuel is more resistant to pre-ignition or detonation, or in a practical sense it will run smoother. In the older 4.6 motors a low octane fuel would cause a knock or top end valve noise when the motors aged. It started between 30k and 40k on my two older mustangs. Will the sensors in a 5.0 prevent this, they are supposed to. Does a boat float, then why do you have life jackets on it... Pay the extra 20 cents a gallon, and let this thread die.

I don't want to be associated with the Ford gang.


Have a great day!

Ignore the few!

Sounds like this guy went 60k on 87 (although he only had 404 Hp I guess )

"The Power: having 412 horsepower at your disposal in a daily-driven car that runs on 87 octane and gets good mileage was nothing but a fantasy 20 years ago but it’s reality with this car."

It is actually 40-45 cents more per gallon than 87. I don't know why the gas companies jacked it up so much in the last 5 or 6 years.

The base GT is a stripper that looks fabulous, but she is a real big boned girl. She gets going real fast, any time, but don't try to deviate her path or god forbid slow here down at all, neither is going to happen very comfortably.
