View Full Version : Gas question

Ok, I know that this has been tossed around in the past, but I'm putting a little bit differnt twist to it. If you have the option what do you do?
Option 1: is fill your tank with 89 octane with 10% ethanol
Option 2: is fill your tank with 87 octane/no ethanol.

The reason I pose this question is, we have a gas station in the area that sells only 87 octane gas but does not have ethanol in it. All the other stations put 10% in theirs. I for one did fill my boat with the 87 octane/ethanol free gas on the last fill up.

Just putting this out for a little discussion since 89 is the recommended octane.

If I could avoid ethanol I would do it.

No need to re-invent the thread.

Wasn't trying to in-invent the thread. The one discussed a while back poses the question 87,89,92 considering all things being equal. That being they either all have an ethanol blend or they are free from ethanol. My question is 89 with ethanol vs. 87 without. Just a slight twist to an old discussion.
