93 Octane 99% of the time. I can definitely tell a difference running 87. I get about 1.5 MPG less, and very slight loss of power. If I run NON-ETHANOL 93 I gain about 1.5 (no power gain I can feel).

That is interesting since I get the same results with my V6; however, the Bully Dog does give it its best performance when running 93. Occasionally on a longer trip I will mix in 89 since its blowing right out the tailpipe anyway.

I usually just use the regular but when I go on the highway I'll usually use the higher grade fuel.

87 here unless I tow my camper then prob premium. I see no real difference in my Pathy when I run either 87 or 91 I have no "Ping" on 87 even on real hot days. My 2006 V6 Toyota 4Runner would have a slight "Ping" when it was hot out running 87 when I would put my foot into it.

Years ago when I had my 99 Tacoma 3.4L I would get 17 mpg on 87 and 19 mpg on 93. And back then 93 was alway 0.20 cents more then 87. So it was cheaper to run 93. Now they charge more then 0.20 cent for 93.
Math back then.
$3.21 / 17 MPG = 0.1888235294117647 cents a mile
$3.41 / 19 MPG = 0.1794736842105263 cents a mile
