    Is plasti-dip a mod?!
    I also stick with ethanol free as much as possible. It costs a little more, but I plan on keeping this rig a loooooooong time.

    Great article I read that few days ago. I go costco for all my vehicle and I used 91 octane. I tried the 87 however there was a slight difference on the acceleration smoothness. I maybe wrong but at least I felt it with my 4R and other cars.

    The manual actually says to use 87 octane or higher, or you could have engine knocking.
