Reason I ask is because I am still wondering about mpg issues. I tend to think better grade would result in better mpg. Nothing scientific, it just sort of makes sense somewhere in my brain. Plus, I also tend to think that 91 would be cleaner.What type of fuel (octane wise) is everybody using? I've been paying top $ for 91 in California but others tell me they burn 87 so I'm trying that, see if it makes a difference.
Anybody know if we have straight gas her in California? I haven't been able to figure it out yet.Wings are "made" to run 87 and 10% ethanol will do no harm.
I do get 2 or 3 more MPG using straight gas over the ethanol mix.
Usually I found no mileage improvement by using a higher octane.
Concluded using a higher grade was a waste of $$ years ago!
You might check at the Union 76 stations, here in Oregon most of them carry non-alcohol fuels. There a little more expensive, but thats what I run in my bike.Anybody know if we have straight gas her in California? I haven't been able to figure it out yet.
I know from my hotrod and having it dyno tuned year over year (same team, same dyno) that California fuel is some of the worst there is available. The Mustang reacts poorly to degraded gasoline because it is tuned right up to the edge. That said; the Wing does not seem to care one way or another. I mean what 120 rwhp out of 1.8L? (never had mine on a dyno, just guessing), something like 65HP/L is not exactly a stressed engine. Seems close to perfect for its intended use.Anybody know if we have straight gas her in California?

Don't know about California but the gas around here of most brands come from a fuel yard in Birmingham and distributed to the stations. Most people don't realize this is the case.Anybody know about Costco gas? I filled up there yesterday and the truck was there. Guess I could of checked but didn't think about it. Maybe he would have told me what refinery he came from.
