Run the numbers. Like me you might find itís actually cheaper to run premium than regular.

All I run is 91 is my Taco and I seem to get about 40 more miles out of a tank. Seems to run much smoother at idle. Overall I would say the truck is much happier with the 91 so I give her what she wants.

Filling up with high octane is only like 2 dollars more total on each fill up. Its better and gives you more "pick me up" why not just spend the 2 bucks to keep your truck longer? take care of your truck and it will take care of you.

Basic math= 87 is $3.15 High is 3.35 after ten gallons thats only 2 bucks. so like 2.40 more in my tank. worth it.
