    something I didn’t consider when buying this rig!! With gas prices going up, $3.18 a gal stings at Plus grade.

    87 is the lowest you can get around here. Here being Kansas City. I travel for work and I don’t remember seeing an octane rating lower than 87 anywhere. Where do you live?

    Here in Utah 85 is regular, 87 Super, 90-91 Premium is what you’ll normally see here. I’ve always used regular in past vehicles and most seem to use 85 octane that I’ve seen.

    85 is fine at higher elevations, I use it with no issues.

    I've had many vehicles in the past and never felt that 91 gave me any benefit, it does seem mid-grade was a bit better. Now I feel that we've had this lower quality fuel than the rest of the Nation ! Whats wrong with this place! lol

    no 85 octane here... also no E85 ethanol fuel.. these must use 87 octane with 10% or less ethanol .. cannot use any 15% ethanol fuel..

    I did the 87 to 93 octane test MPG did not change so NO way to use that expensive 93 ..
