I've got LT"s & tune so I have to keep Premium in the tank, but even if I was still stock I'd still put premium in as it runs better and get the best gas mileage.

I have used nothing but Shell V Power in mine and notice that all Shell stations are not the same. The best Shell V Power Premium near you is at the corner of Harwood and Norwood drive in Bedford.

You need to reset your fuel octaine tables and use nothing but the best from now on, yes it is a little more expensive but at 13 or so gallons even at .20 cents per gallon more...thats just pocket change.

I will run the ZL1 on 93. I'm planning on a pulley kit and tune. I'm going to have them tune for hopefully 3 settings if it can be done. 1) Wet/milage for wet weather(duh) and long highway cruising. 2) Sport for more intense twisties and stuff, 3) Track for rip your head off what is MPG?
