Going back to Regular
With gas hitting 3.40 a Gal how many people that were running premium have gone back to regular?

Talking about the V6 guy's. We know the V8 require Premium.

Not me. 93 or higher! I didn't buy a racehorse to feed it puppy chow!

I always use regular anyway. If it's what the manufacturer recommends, it's good enough for me (I have a V6 though).

On occasion, I put higher octane in, but 99% of the time, it's regular.

The price of a gallon is up to $3.73 here.

It calls for Premium so that's what she gets....

Is there something different with the tune from the factory that can automatically increase timing for 91-93 octane?

You know it runs fine off 87 octane for the v6 and the v8...hence the low octane tables.

RedJewel2SS 03-05-2011 06:44 PM

premium is roughly $0.24-$0.30 more per gallon and say you put 15-18 gallons in every time you fill up... that's about $3.60 - $5.40 more per fill up.

if you can't afford $5 more for premium, then you can't afford a brand new camaro!

that being said, if your filling up your V6 with premium, even though the factory recommends regular, you are just wasting $5 every time you fill up.

the only time you should fill your V6 up with premium is if it has been tuned to run premium. you are not getting any added performance or fuel mileage by running premium in an untuned V6 camaro!
