I used low....
I did try the high octane for about 4 fill ups just to "test" and see if my mpg changed. It cost about $6 more a tank and I only noticed my average mpg went up from 18 to 18.2 (and that could have been just how I drove as well) so it was not significant enough, in my case, to keep using high grade.
This is just my own personal test though, nothing major.

I didn't even run high octane in my Acura TL and it called for it. I know several people that don't in their "luxury" cars. Sometimes I just feel like it is a marketing scam lol

If you can find premium containing no ethanol then you will get a little better gas mileage but not nearly enough to warrant the extra cost.Really there is no cost benefit nor performance benefit using anything but regular unleaded

What ever regular is. newer engines aren't affected by ethanol in gas because the tunes are set up for 10% which is average. Where older engines use the o2 is relied on more to compensate a/f.
