why not?? only if tthe timing is advanced you need to run more octane

for your Taurus, 87 octane is recommended and all you need. Any octane higher is a waste of money.

Anything other than a "top tier" 87 octane fuel is a waste of money.

use the premium- higher octane is always good- I think Tom and Bob missed the collapse of the oil industry and think that gas prices are still high- or somethin'

We just like to use the cheap stuff, jamnblues. The Marauder still gets premium, but it is 87 octane for the wife's Lincoln and my Dodge ram.
