What gas octane do you use in your car??
87, the only kind the manual says to use and what searching for on this site tells me to as well.

I don't know?? Maybe running higher octane fuel on a TC might not do anything for the performance??? But I know for sure that my 2000 Maxima SE rans like a piece of ***** on 87 oktane!!!! My best 1/4 time on the track was 14.7 on octane 93!!!

Explain how higher octane cleans your fuel system better than lower octane.

Hight octane fuel is clener than low octane fuel by it self!! naughty.gif[/b]
Interesting results. But, I think that web page is saying that all grades of Shell gasoline are cleaner than discount brands. See this page Get The Facts On Fuel from the same site that says use the octane level recommended by the car manufacturer.

As far as I know If fuel is cleaner---->octain is higher! (Fuel for flights)
From Diesel-->87--->91--->93--->to Racing Fuel
So from my understandig then cliner fuel then less trash in your fuel sistem and engine!! Maybe I'm not right!??!

I think that article is referring to a brand of gas, not octane.



And since when was octane the deciding factor in how "clean" the fuel system is? Octane, I thought, was really all about the resistance of the fuel to preignition, or whatever. It's the detergents that clean the fuel system
