do I need to run an 89 octane gasoline

It can run 89, but you can run the other 2 octane fuels too. If I run premium fuel in my 05 I get about a 2mpg improvement, but for the cost difference I just stick with regular.

no, you do not need to run 89 octane, 87 is perfectly fine for a half ton Silverado.

Try it and see if your power is up or if the mileage goes up. If your truck is pinging on 87 then I would use 89 or premium.
