On the way home I noticed what felt like more power! In addition, the car was quieter when idleing/coasting yet louder when accelerating! It even shifted smoother and less jerky and overall the thing drives all around better and smoother. I love it!
In the owners manual it states that higher octane gas will increase performance.
Ever fantasize about putting a bullet through your Sync?
