If you have to fill up with 87 octane as I did on Long Island, Do Not rev the engine too high. I am basically shifting between 2000-2500 rpm. If you push the engine to hard with a lower octane you are essentially straining it. I have gone through half a tank of 87 and the car is running smoothly. I also poured a bottle of octane booster for good measure after the first 50 miles running 87. Gas lines are dying out since Friday night so I hope to fill up with premium gas very soon.
