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

    I keep my reciepts on every fillup and check my mpgs. I haven't noticed much of a difference in mileage using premium, at least not with my everyday driving. I was assuming my 21mpg came from the long periods at 1800 rpm.

    Not enough to mention on this one. Give me time!
    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.
