Yeah, it friggen LOVES that god damned Persian Perrrier. 91 Octane, Chevron, is all it drinks, the Techron additive supposed to clean the injectors, while you drive, and so far, at 119,000 miles, it works.

It keeps tigers away, also. Haven't seen one around here for years.

My 2.8 Euro seems to run fine on regular but it gets the best mileage on hi-test, so it is kind of a wash, so I run hi-test all the time. I don't trust "plus" because of reports a lot of stations just fill their "plus" tanks with regular because after all, they are scumbag fucking oil companies.

Coming from a resident of TEXAS, that statement has more than just the ring of truth.

But that has been my feeling about them all my life, the gougers and profiteers who run them should have their corpses burned in a barrel and their fucking ashes thrown into a god damned sewage canal.

I think it was in the general forum, there was a thread that said the "Plus" is actually just a pump that cycles between the premium tank and the regular tank, blending the two. It sounded rather knowledgeable, I'd have no idea.

Personally I think plus is a sucker game. No one who knows they need premium is going to use it, but I know some folks whose cars are designed for regular that use it sometimes to "treat their car nice". That's a pretty brain-dead proposition, if you ask me.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

No way. My pickup used to ping like crazy on regular, so I retarded the ignition timing.
