Re: What fuel for 14 5.7

89 is what is recommended for the HEMI. Can accept 87 but 89 is recommended and 93 is a waste.

SRT is a different animal. The Hemi and V6 aren't going to gain anything with the premium gas. Stick with what works for you and the engine will be fine.

Re: What fuel for 14 5.7

I only run 87 in my MY12 hemi with great results...including good fuel economy. It's the same engine in the MY14. I haven't tried 89...Costco doesn't sell it.

Re: What fuel for 14 5.7

I always put 89 in mine (91 when at Costco) and my wife has put 87 in the first couple times. I don't feel a difference in performance, but for peace of mind, I just put what the manufacture recommends. They build the engine, so they know best right? It's only a couple more bucks and keeps me from going in and buying junk food to make me fatter.

Re: What fuel for 14 5.7

89 ... I read the owners manual and decided I'd splurge since I'm coming off 2 1/2 years of 93.

89 is cheap by comparison.

Re: What fuel for 14 5.7

Wish they sold 89 in Colorado. Mid-grade here is only 87--since lower pressure at altitude.

Re: What fuel for 14 5.7

Maybe 87 is all you need way up in the air like that.

Re: What fuel for 14 5.7

Since I live at 8500FT elevation, there is certainly less pressure and thus slower burning fuel mixture. My concern is that modern vehicles already adjust their timing (and fuel amounts) for the higher altitude. So the engine management system is still looking for 89 octane. I know it will "back-off" timing if it detects pre-ignition, but I would rather just feed it the 89 it expects. (Years ago vehicle manufactures sold cars with milled "Denver Heads" to increase internal pressures. Also the carbs came with leaner "Denver Jets." That would not work today because we all drive back down to sea level, and the EPA would not allow those mods.)

Also, several previous vehicles owned were turbo charged. So the altitude excuse to sell lower octane fuel really did not apply for turbo/supercharged engines. For those engines, 93 octane would be nice "up here," but they only sell 91.
