Regular 87 is going to get you better MPG.

Your 2nd question, I don't really understand what you mean.

Re: 2014 V6 fule !!

The 85 octane is not necessarily E85. If it was, the pump should indicate it.

Your area may have 85 Octane based on your altitude. At high altitudes, due to thinner air, engines can run on lower octane. The thinner air actually lowers the compression ... the determining factor for octane requirements.
