87 is "recomended" but out here in alamogordo NM, they have 86,88,91 octanes so i just run 86. ive had no problems with idle speed, driving or starting at all

I have been running Premium as a test. I have been getting really close to 20mpg if I don't get 20. So for me the couple extra dollars makes is worth it between engine life and save money with better mpg.
