You CAN, but you'll feel a loss in power and you should stay away from wide open throttle. Might cause some ping, too.

I'd save the 87 octane for emergencies only.

Wow, that's a lot better than our standard 87. Some places even sell 86.

But it depends on how they come up with that octane level in Australia. Different countries figure it different ways.

Re: Regular unleaded in the 2014 SRT

Why would you NEED to run 91?

This is not a personal attack, but FFS why would you buy a high performance car and then feed it shit fuel? (although Aussie fuel is all shit anyway lol)

When I started driving, to be called Hi-Test the octane had to be 100 or higher. I was working part time at a Hess station in my senior year of high school when they change the method. To the typical customer the octane went down and the price stayed the same. It took a lot of 'splainin Lucy!

Here in South Africa we have 95 Octane as premium. Would adding an octane booster to my tank make a difference in terms of power?

I remember back then Sunoco 260 had an octane level of 102. Along with lead added. Worked great in my then 1970 Camaro SS 396-375. Anything less than 98 octane and the engine made all kinds of pinging (not good) sounds.

The good old days when just being around the exhaust fumes would make your eyes water.
