..and in a forum environment it's generally frowned upon to create multiple "new" threads on a topic that already has an ongoing discussion. It's more work for the moderators, because now someone should have to come in and merge this thread with the others.. when you could have just posted in the other thread and keep that one going (one which already contains more information from the start). It's also more work for the members of the forum to look through multiple threads on the same topic for information, when it could all be found on one place.
I like 93% unicorn jizz from any pump.

Whatever gas you use in whatever car it doesn't help your car one bit to use a higher octane. Waste of money. Nissan says to put 87 in my Xterra. I put 87. For the STi I'll put 93 though even though I'll be stock as I believe it's recommended.

Also it will vary car to car and state to state.
I have had varying results from the Big oil company's. And I settled on shell v power, my car likes that best and has the best data log results.
But that's just me and my car. You could have a completely different experience in another part of the country. I'd say data log and see whats best for you and your car.
We have one gas station near my house with 102 octane. $7.00 a gallon. I see the V8 guys filling up there all the time.
Shell V-Power only.
I'm in advertising, and I still fall for the advertising.

I thought 91+ was required? If 93 is required, that sucks for everyone in Arizona/California/Nevada.
