    Yeah, I was totally expecting way more out of 91 E0. The first couple of tanks, I was disappointed but decided to stick with it. After 6 tanks, I was like WTH am I paying an extra $0.60 a gallon for? I switched back to 87 E0 and the first tank jumped by almost 1 mpg and it's continued upward since. I have been very conscious about driving the same way and trying not to affect the results and I am shocked at the difference.

    85 here in Colorado. The truck seems to be happy with that grade but I should try 89 and see if that adds a little boost climbing the passes.

    Typically I run anything higher than 87 due to knocking and pinging/low RPM light throttle miss I get on 87. I can even run E15 88 octane from sheetz better than any 87 E10. No E0 around my parts so it is what it is.

    If I fill up at a 1/4 to 1/2 of a tank of anything other than 87, I can top off with 87 and have no issues. I will fill up with 87 when towing since it only gets me about 200 miles before I am filling up again and i'm running right through it.

    My truck tune is 100% stock.

    Toyota engines like high octane fuel. People instead spend money on fluff like bulbs and cheap rims.
