The only non-ethanol gasoline I can get in my area is 91 octane everything else is 10% corn gas....so I use the 91. I will literally drive in and out of 2 or 3 gas stations to avoid the corn gas especially in states like Iowa. I have to do the same in my Mercedes but that requires 91 minimum so I have no choice on that one but never, ever, corn gas.

87 all the way ... some times I feel generous and waste money on 89 or 91 makes me feel like I’m treating the ol girl right.....

anyway I’m broke, but I “feel” better

I accidently bought 88 octane yesterday... pushed the wrong button... but I swear the seat felt hotter..... :unsure:
It should have.

After all, there are fewer dollar bills insulating the posterior from the engine heat!
