    Higher grade gas helps to get those monster tires rolling instead of having to gun it more with the cheap stuff. Just a little food for thought.

    Really depends on the motor you are running. Most times as long as your compression ratio is not too high you are fine w/ the 87 octane. A lot of the 90 and 92 octanes do have cleaners and addatives that are nice for the fuel injectors everyonce in a while. I have actually seen a few cars that have had huge deposits of gunk, minerals, etc in the fuel system and in the injectors because all they use is 92 and think well it makes me feel like I'm taking care of my car. Told them to switch to 87 and one tankful of 90 a month and no problems. Just my $.02 worth.
