I've known people with SVT that never ran anything but the cheapest gas they could find. So I don't one tank will cause any harm.

SVT requires 91 minimum octane. Thats just foolish to run cheap stuff.

Mix the half a tank of 87 with half a tank of 91 and take it easy with the throttle. As long as the engine isn't under a large load it should be fine with a little lower grade gas.

There are a couple octane boosters out there that do actually raise the octane a significant amount. Still think it's only about a point per bottle (per 10 or 15 gallons), but it's more useful than that other stuff that really doesn't do anything.
