Re: Couple of questions

Just to clarify a few of the above octane contradictions. The following is copied from page 306 of the 2007 Owner's Manual which is available here:

http://www.jeep.com/en/owners/manual...and%20Cherokee

Quote:
"5.7L Engines (If Equipped)
The 5.7L engine is designed to meet all
emissions regulations and provide satisfac-
tory fuel economy and performance when
using high quality unleaded gasoline hav-
ing an octane range of 87 to 89. The manu-
facturer recommends the use of 89 octane
for optimum performance. The use of premium gasoline
is not recommended. Under normal conditions, the use of
premium gasoline will not provide a benefit over high
quality regular and mid-grade gasolines, and in some
circumstances may result in poorer performance."
Unless you have an aftermarket tune, 87 or 89 will work, but 89 is recommended.

3/36 but I got the 7/70 and added 15k miles so I technically have the 7/85 .. if anything happens it's a $100 deductible on limited warranty work and I get a rental while it's in the shop.

Thanks for the link.. I haven't read my manual since I acquired my Jeep and thought is was specifically 87... I'll use 89 now, thanks!
