    Morning All , Just picked up my 18 last week , dealer said 87 octane fuel is fine . Just wondering if anybody out there has used anything other than 87 and if they have noticed a difference in engine performance or mpg . Thanks for any info . Have a great day .

    Is plasti-dip a mod?!
    I use 87, but stick to top tier. I use ethanol free if at all possible, and my supplier happens to be shell, which is top tier. Get ethanol free if you can, 87 will be just fine.

    I just use high quality 87 or 89 (I've noticed certain ambient temps have ran better on 89 than 87, still experimenting to figure out what's best when). Every once in a while I'll run 93 if possible or 91 to give the injectors a nice cleaning
