So we know that the R requires 91+ octane. We also know that the R runs just fine in daily driving with 87+ octane.

Please be honest about what gas you use. The poll is anonymous.

93 and where ever I am when I run out of gas. I put 1,800-2,000 miles a month on the car and notice no difference in performance by brand.

At least e50-e70 all the time, but I’m lucky e85 is plentiful here. But before the fueling upgrades, 93 oct all the time. The corn mix is just wonderful stuff though :)

I'm at a Stage 2 93 HO tune so I keep it to 93 all the time, unless I'm traveling in low octane states. In that case, I'll dump a bottle of Royal Purple Octane Booster in each tank

92 at Amoco or 93 at Shell.

Very occasionally I might buy non-top tier fuel when on the road, but it's always a minimum of 92.
