I did find an engine manual and ACTUALLY read it. The computer in the engine is basically tuned for unleaded 87. It will automatically adjust, so I won't put good money or unleaded real gas in there if it will not help. Boy....not like the old days. Computers are taking care of alot. I have some miles to do this summer so will keep track of mileage and gas used.

The engine is DESIGNED to run on unleaded 87.
The computer doesn't do it ALL.
And there are limits to how much it can adjust and under what circumstances.
