Fuel For TACOMA 2012 2.7L

I am using Premium gas for my Tacoma 2012.
Some people says regular is the best one, but I think premium will give me more power!!!

Suggestions please!!!!

Premium burns slower.
I prefer regular.
It may be in my head but I feel I have less power when I use premium.
But, this is on my 99 2.7 so take it with a grain of salt.

Like what was already mentioned, save your money and use 87 octane.

How is a higher octane gas going to give a truck engine more power?

What does the owners manual say? Good, stick with 87.

Our engines do not have multiple fuel maps so running a higher octane will not do anything.
