Hmmm....so many possible ways to answer this. I could be a jerk and flame you for asking a question that has a thread that's probably a thousand and 1 pages long, or I could recommend using something like E85 or diesel fuel. I guess I'll just say this, use what you want and that's that.

i have found out that running the lower grade gas over time seems to eventually give you a ticking noise... not sure why but i personally run either 93 or ethonal free gas when i can find it! but like kingston said its personal opinion..

Actually, that's a good point that I forgot about because I don't have a choice, but if you live in a part of the country where you have a choice between ethonal gas and non-ethanol go for the pure stuff every time.

Been using 87 in my little 3.4L with no issues. Been adding FP60 Plus every fill up for the last 8 years. A gallon lasts me 6-8 months.

I run 85 or 87 depending on the state, per the recommendation of the best Toyota mechanic I have ever known. Also not sure if its a huge difference, but I use non-ethanol treated gas. You can find gas stations that have non-ethanol gas at realgas.org.

what fuel

A much better source of ethanol-free stations is www.pure-gas.org

Arranged by state/city.

Everyone knows the higher the octane, the higher the mpg.
This topic has tons of threads.

you could do your own tests and see what gets you best mpg vs price. i personally use cheveron all the time. either 87 or 91 octane. just depends on the price. you can't tell the difference, but it might show in the mpg's.
