My 2001 Eclipse Spyder (2.4l 4cyl) also runs best on 89 octane.

For the .10c per gallon difference, go for it.

i always put in 93, better mileage and runs better. Totally worth it.

it doesn't make any difference in my frontier. cheaper the better. now my spec v i used to have ran like crap on anything less than 89,but it would be better on 93

I would agree on the running better part.

Anyone who owns an engine made to run with 87-89 octane and claims that running 91 or 93 octane makes the engine "run better" or get better gas mileage is just fooling themselves.

Use the octane your engine was made to run with. :thumbupw:

My engine was made to run on 87, but I will only run 93. Dont feel safe running any less.




Engine is not stock at all though
