If all you have is regular then stop by the auto parts store and pick up some octane booster. Add it in the tank and you're good to go.
I bought a can of Lucas octane booster. By adding a can to a full tank of 87 regular is this equivalent to running premium fuel? Will the OB at least help avoid any issues with running lower octane fuel?
