You may get a little bit better mpg based on the fact that Florida is generally very flat.

I dont think the TQ app will actually show the knock sensor readings , it will just show 0 all the time ?????

Good lord this is a long thread, I gave up after like page 15. Ah the octane wars, almost as heated as the caliber wars among gun enthusiasts. I never put anything other than mid grade fuel in my four bangers but after I do a sct tune I definitely will be running premium. Fuel and oil are something you should never go cheap on your car if you want it to last. Oil company hype or not our cars need petroleum products end of story, and I sure as hell ain't driving an EV so I might as well give it the good stuff.

I've been using E10 93 (mostly Shell) for the past couple of months. Overall driveability is noticeably better. Like it!
