It says that so you can use 87 for emergencies when you're on E and 91 or 93 is not available so you're not worried about the engine failing.

Lol Thank you!

But honestly, I go 1.5 weeks between fill ups. There are times when I look at the news paper and go holy shit the national average is up, where have i been?

Like i am a caveman crawling out from beneath a rock. I feel completely uninformed.

Someone has to say the obvius:

Maybe you should have bought a V-6, then you wouldn't have to worry about having "too much" performance from a V-8 running 93 Octane.These V-8's run much better on 93 octane fuel. My dealer, had put 87 Octane regular in my Rosie, and it felt a bit sluggish. Ran that out of the system, put in 93 Octane (and even though some say it diesn't help manual transmission cars), I did the fuse pull and my seat of the pants performacne evaluation, told me the car ran much better performancewise on 93 octane.

If the difference in price makes you cringe, then run 87 octance. But, no complaining about your car being a bit sliggish need be thrown out on the table later!

Then the thread would have been "The manual says use 87 but will I get better performance if I use 91/93?"

Dude, Ease up. The original post just wanted to know if was possible to use 87.

Yes, I realize that was the question, but, then there was all the banter about its a waste of money, not ncessary, ad nauseum.

Hence my comments.
