    I use the cheap stuff around town and premium when I'm towing. Around here, the increase in mileage while towing means the price difference is a wash. So the increased performance is free...

    We get treated to 93 here. I haven’t seen a pump with anything higher in years.

    Yes. I think 87 pulls timing and a little boost. Even at part throttle it's a noticeable difference. I only use premium while towing because power in regular is usually adequate, if not joy inducing.

    Regular when not on a road trip or towing then it’s Premium.

    In my work yard I fill up with Regular. But when I am travelling, I use 94 octane. Can really tell the difference imo. Oh and I selected 2 options in the poll. 87 and +90 octane.

    Yes. Using premium will make all 400hp available. Using regular will "detune" the engine down about 25hp or so.
