    2006 TUNDRA DOUBLE CAB, BOUT TO BE 2008 TACOMA DOUBLE CAB, PRERUNNER
    Hello all!!!
    Proud to soon be joining your clan...you all seem very happy with your trucks. I currenlty have an '06 Tundra Double Cab...gas prices going up, family growing, time to downsize...
    Looking to buy a double cab prerunner...trd package. Biggest question/worry, 91 octane fuel??? Does everyone run 91 through their V6? If not is there a mileage difference? Performance or noise differences? Please let me know pros and cons...thanks so much!

    I've got an '08. My stealer told me to run 87. I think that was one of the subtle changes from '07 to '08 is the 87 octane fuel you can run.

    I run 87...... no problems at all.

    If you're towing or doing more extreme driving (up/down mountains or whatever) and you start hearing knocking/pinging - then 91 octane would be a benefit to you.

    But with gas prices the way they are.... I don't think its worth running even mid grade.

    I have been running 87 octane since new and I have never had any problems, noises, knocks, loss of power or anything. If you get really worried about it, maybe every time you do an oil change you can buy a bottle of injector cleaner or octane boost and put in with a new tank of gas. Oh, and Welcome to the World!
