    No point in it . I'd suspect another problem, if you smell fuel in the cab, anything from a car in front of you, to a leak in yours.
    Fwiw , ive never smelled gas in mine on 87 ,or 89 when i ran it occasionally.

    I didnt think I would, but it seemed to run smoother , otherwise no difference in power or mpg that i could tell.

    I wouldn't, the 2.7 is designed to run on 87. Anything else would be a waste. The 4.0 is designed to run best on 91 and I do notice a difference in throttle response and MPG over the 87 on mine.
