+1 lol. I run 93 in my Barracuda, even it doesn't "need" it. I could pass on 89 I hesitate on 89 in my Ranger AND i have a tune for it. 93 just isn't worth it imo, not on a regular basis.

You are wasting your money. Do you even know what octane ratings mean or are you one of these people that think the higher the octane the cleaner the fuel is?

Some of the people here have tuners with octane specific tunes...... remember?

Or are you one of those people that think everybody’s trucks should remain stock and should always be serviced at the dealer?

Enjoy it while you can guys. Because they have pushed the market. When gas hits $4 a gallon is when people start to change thier habits. Rest assured.. it'll hit $4 again asap.

Filled my 88' Mustang from 1/4 to full with $32 . . . driving to work 6 days a week from a farm and anywhere else will last me about a 1.5 - 2 weeks. God I love a sports car that is "quick" and great on gas

About 29mph highway and 25ish city from a V8, can't say the same for the Lincoln though.
