No, i dont have a ProECM. I drive alot during the week and fill up about 2 times a week (thank God for Shell gas cards). I used the 87 Octane for 1 month, watched my milage. Then used 89 Octane for 1 month, watched milage. Then use 91 octane now for 6 months. heres the results:

87 Octane, full tank, $22, filled up 2.5 times a week(M-S) =
344 miles

89 Octane, full tank, $23.50, filled up 2 times a week (M-S) =
387 miles

91 Octane, full tank, $24.75, fill up 1 time a week (M-S) =
443 miles

I always fill up on Monday Morning on my way to work. On my drive i do lots of different driving: Up hill, Down hill, lots of curve and corners both up and down, straight aways, speeds from 35-70 MPH.
When people first look at the gas price they dont see the difference it will make in the long run in $. But, gas prices are going up, so i do use the 89 Octane occasionally. but over all, USE THE BETTER OCTANE.

76 Gas ONLY. 89 octane. I tried 91 for several months and determined it runs just as good if not better with 89.

Lower octane also ignites easier thus ensuring a better burn. If your running an na car, you want the lowest octane you can get wihtout knock/ping.

You forgot to mention the part about the Lower octane doesnt burn as clean as a higher Octane fuel, thus is the cause of most Cat Inefficency CEL. And we all hate that CEL......blinky. haha

the manual says 87. higher octane fuel should only be used for a carburated (non-fuel injected...ie. old) or tuned vehicle.

what the factory says, is what you should put in! you are most likely losing power if you are not using what the say.
