Hi All:

I just drove my Silver/Black home.....

What grade of gas works best..

What, the owners manual doesn't have an opinion? http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smirk.gif

There's been a number of comments suggesting higher octane gives better mileage, giving better cost per mile... Keep reading in the Forum...

Welcome to the M-O family http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif I MUST commend you on your color choice too !!!

I started using 91 octane ... that's what is recommended in the owners manual for optimum performance. And I have noticed the mpg going up ... but imo that's also due to having logged more miles as well.

Check the previous threads for lots more comments about this.

I was getting better mileage on the free tank of gas they gave me 22 something a mile. Ever since it has been going down, I use the Amaco super octane (91 octane). And now im getting 17.3 a mile!!! Im going to try some other brands and grades over the winter. I will keep all of you advised......

I don't know for sure, but I've heard some companies change the mix from winter to summer and that there's alcohol mixed in as well. Be nice to know more about who's doing what and how that affects mileage.

Just think, before you had a computer telling you this, you probably wouldn't have bothered to figure it out... http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/crazy.gif

yeah ... in California we get that "extra-special" clean gasoline http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/shocked.gif So I'm sure that has an impact on mileage. It sure does on the wallet http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif

LOL ... I've always been anal-retentive about my cars, and have kept a detailed diary about everything ... repairs, costs, washes and waxes ... and even fill-ups and the mpg. At least now I don't have to pull out the calc and figuer it out ... the M-O does it for me http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

Free is always better....The origional batteries always last longer..

My dealer gave me free gas at a getty station so I put in prem gas...

I will try 91 oct in the future...
