It is not to bad. Sometimes in 3rd gear when merging it will break traction going 65-75 and the steering will jerk a little. Makes for a fun time.

91 is recommended for best power out of this engine. It will run on regular though. Ethanol free in my opinion is the best for this motor. Ethanol just lowers the octane around here. I like my 91 Ethanol free. Plus i filled up with 93 that has Ethanol and my mileage is down. 91 without Ethanol i notice i get about 3mpg better.
