I have always used 91. The ride is also tuned for 91. Plus I think 91 or higer is recommended with the Maggie.

TIME RAN OUT OF POSTING THE POLE ITSELF. IF ANY OF YOU WANT TO ADD IT GO AHEAD. DON'T THINK I CAN EDIT THREAD TO SHOW POLE QUESTIONS. WAS GOING TO ADD STP GAS TREATMENTS? ZMAX GAS TREATMENTS, MARVELS MYSTERY OIL, VALVOLINE, LUCAS, ETC.
I use ONLY 91 + octane in my 05 GTO. I will NEVER use any type of additive or Octane booster except for maybe once a year when I use LUCAS injecter cleaner, I will also use fuel stabilizer when in winter storage. I don't like using additives on a regular basis because it screws up your cars Computer system by having it try to correct itself for the octane changes and the change in Chemicals in the fuel. SAVE the 87 & 89 OCTANE for your LAWN MOWER and SNOW BLOWER

Just way too much to list,

Well, I do use 93

Yea, I use 93 Octane, Sunoco, and I am from New Jersey. Topped her off to day and had less than half tank. Cost me $32.00. I didn't even bother to see what the price per gallon actually was. It wouldnt of mattered anyway. I dump mystery oil in every other fill up. Cuz, it takes me forever to burn one tank full. In two more weeks will have the goat for an entire year. I just went past 1,036. miles.

A few weeks ago we were @3.89 for 91 here in Los Angeles. This week we are at 3.64. This is a good week for us and I really wish we had 93 or higher here, but you know CA, strictest in the nation on emissions. I prefer to put either Chevron or 76.
