Since about November, I've been running only 87 octane in my car
. No, I'm not
. I took the Hypertech "power tuning" out of my computer, because it forced me to run 94 octane last summer, and because all I've been doing is driving back and forth to work in cold weather, the car has been running fine
. I think once when it got milder I put in about 3/4 tank of 89 octane
, but otherwise, I've only heard momentary pinging once or twice, so I said "screw it"
, and my car has been running happily on 87
If someone really disagrees with me for this, let's pull apart my engine and show me what damage I've done, because trust me, I believe it will show ZERO damage
. Heck, 2 weeks ago I set the all-time mileage record for my car! 501 kms on 1 tank of gas!
(that's 310 miles). You can't convince me that the motor isn't working good.
