The recommended is 94, worse case senario, it works on 91.

This is COOL!, I will fill up with some rocket fuel this weekend.

Oh and by the way, when I bought the car the dealer told me the car runs just fine with 87, from what I read and the manual say's, the dealer should do more home work.

They're the dumb middle man between you and your car. They have a job to do but they should at least know the product they are selling

However the question is would you run it on regular if gas price goes sky high lol.
It requires premium. The good news is premium will provide greater MPG and power.

Funny when the M1 Abrams firsst came out one of the major selling points was the "it can run on any fuel from Tequila to Jet fuel".
It can even run on Diesel.

Seriously guys, I'm still not sure what fuel to put in this car. I've been trying to figure this out since June of 2012. I think a few more people should chime in on what we should do so we can all be sure.

We poured about 5 gallons of rum (it was about 100,000 proof and undrinkable no matter how much you cut it with mix) into an M35 multifuel truck one time. That sonofabitch loved the stuff and we were pretty much ready to take it on the drag circuit.

Wonder if OP still even has the car at this point!
This shows how a thread that was answered on the very first reply can grow to 180+ posts and live forever though.
