I run 93 now, but I was running 87 for awhile. The car runs fine on 87, but you do notice a little power loss.

91 is the highest octane count you can get at a station here in the Worker's Paradise.

91 or higher states the owners manual (but who reads that thing?)

I've only fed the Goat Sunoco 94. Then again it only has 2,200 miles on it.

The Tahoe drinks 89.

Having 16 cylinders isn't always the best idea, but it is the most fun.

..... don't know if I'd do that on a stock goat, but, as long as it's unleaded it should be relatively safe. BTW, get ready to replace the plugs.
