i have been running 91 since i bought my car 3 years ago. i wonder how much money i would have saved by just using 87, and if it would even hurt my stock KA.

i bet the money is prolly something significant like $1000 thats crazy.

Honestly don't really have a lot of that shit here.

I go to Kangaroo...not sure who supplies their gas. It's just unbranded gas.

93 all the way though.

Occasionally Hess.

if you have been pumping 91, i wouldn't suggest downgrading,
I've ran 87-91 and when i went back to cheaper grade my car would backfire more run shitty,idle etc,
but when i went back to 91 im running smoooth.

I've never had any backfiring problems, but I have noticed a significant performance issue. Besides the difference between 89 and 91 isnt all that much these days. Might as well just spend the extra $2.00.

actually, i let my gf use my S14 for a month and she was pumping cheap 87 and my check engine light came on out of no where. turns out the cheap gas clogged up my EGR valve and had to take it apart and clean it! it was a bitch too!

so i only pump 91 lol

Use to run sheetz some times chevron, regular. That was when first got my car. Then stopped using sheetz cause people I knew didn't speak highly of it. So now its chevron or shell, and 93 at that because I bypassed my knock sensor, but still have stock timing. I wonder how good their cleaning additives are like chevrons techron and shells nitrogen whatever its called. Think exxon just came out with something similar, seen commercial the other day?
