I'm nearly through that tank of mid-grade. The CEL is off and everything seems normal now. It may just be that my computer got "set in its ways" and took a while to accept that the fuel was...

Brownhornitt, why would you want MORE heat conduction? The less heat getting from my engine compartment into my air, the better!

The SS has been measured and proven to lose power when burning 87 instead of 91 or 93. It's a fact. If you can't feel a difference, that's due to your butt dyno not being sensitive enough.

Are there any other options? For instance, out here in Iowa, getting a concealed carry license (easy) means you can carry your gun in the car without worrying about a box or a trigger lock.
