I'm sure you've heard this before but you are wasting your money using 93 octane in a V6. The only advantage 93 gives you is it makes you feel like you're fueling a V8.

The V6 has 11.5 to 1 comp ratio, the factory tune advance tables based on 87 octane is naturally very conservative. By running 93 octane, the timing tables utilized will include the max timing spec because no spark knock will be detected . Once the ECU utilizes the high octane timing tables, more power and better mileage. 93 Octane is super critical in the summer heat and if you want max power.
