Well, I went to where I thought I could get 93, but they did not have it. I filled up with 91 and will be driving easy on this tank.
Thanks to all who replied! Hopefully no damage was done and this simple change will correct the problems.
As I was researching octane booster/higher octane gas threads, I found this:
"a full tank of piss water 91 octane at $2.35/gallon"..... what I wouldn't give to pay that price again!!!!!!!!!
91 Octane is fine. 93 is of course better but as we mentioned before, just don't use anything less than 91 and your solid.
The car requires "premium" fuel and 91 octane qualifies as premium. There's absolutely no need to look for 93.
