X2---- Most all small engine repair shops recommend pure gas (no ethanol) for all lawn equipment. I have found to get 1 to 2 mpg better mileage in my wrangler using it. We only have 1 place that sells pure reg. gas in my town and luckily it is only a mile away.

You are not wrong...The tune is what it is all about and if your Jeep is tuned for 87, running anything higher is just throwing your money away as it will not help anything.
Now if you remap with some kind of aftermarket device, you may have to run 91-93 as it will change your tune to get the added HP.

Mfuryous Well since new(has 1700 miles now) I've used nothing but 100% gas and I get 21.5 on hwy (3.73 gears) and about 18.5 town and hwy. not bad eh?
03-03-2012 12:55 PM
1quick1 All 10% here. We have 85, 87, and 89 octane in Denver. Very odd.

JEEPDON Nother thing used to drive me nuts was that there was a station owner where I live that would sell gas line anti freeze to the ladies that put gas with 10% ethanol in their tank!! Gas line AF is Alcohol; Ethanol is alcohol!! Freaking theif!!!

tcass don't have any stations in my area but there might be some in yours. Ethanol-free gas stations in the U.S. and Canada

03-02-2012 08:39 AM
Mfuryous I've been told the stations with regular non ethanol gas, which here in Oklahoma you can get 87 89 and 91 octane , they haven't changed over because the cant afford the new equipment. Ie new tanks, hoses, filter system, ect. They don't just empty the tank and fill it up with the ethanol gases. But that's what I've been told.
03-02-2012 08:13 AM
JEEPDON Many places do not have non ethanol gas any more; Here in ND we can still get straight NL gas 87 octane. anything higher octane has ethanol; in it.
03-02-2012 07:51 AM
Ballandchain So what is this mythical ethanol-free gas everyone has been talking about? I haven't seen this creature in many moons around these parts.......
03-02-2012 06:17 AM
JEEPDON All snake oil-- pure snake oil at its finest!! I hauled refined petroleum products( gasoline, diesel fuel; propane, butane, etc) for about 17 years. I KNOW what it all is! Load Gas at a Cenex terminal and take to a Shell station. Brand name-- ya right!!
Load 87 octane-- take to bulk dealer and he does,nt have room in his tank; so he says to unload into the 91 octane tank!! 91 octane-- ya right!!

yeap... it is true... that's what the manual says... i used to put Super... but after i read the manual <<trying to find something else>> i put 87... better quality is not doing any performance...


1.27 the litter here in Ontario... weekends go up to 1.33
03-01-2012 11:01 PM
rahra21 I run 85 in mine...always have. Usually get 17mpg, so not complaining.
03-01-2012 08:57 PM
pasteris71 I use 87 octane and put in a bottle of fuel injector cleaner once a month.
03-01-2012 07:59 PM
LitleMs My jeep has had 87 regular - Ethanol free for every tank except for the first 2 tanks the dealership put in it. We used to use premium in our van and then switched to regular ethanol free. I was amazed to discover I got better mpg with the regular ethanol free than I was getting with 10% ethanol premium.

My favorite mom & pop gas station stopped carrying ethanol free recently. They said it was too expensive to get brought in. : / Luckily, there is another station in my little town that is still ethanol free. For how long, I don't know. I'm sure the government will get rid of it at some point.
03-01-2012 08:23 AM
cu in oz Shell 87. On a recent trip up north all I could get was Irving 87. No problems with it. I ONLY see Shell trucks deliver Shell------now I don't see them fill up so I don't know if it all comes from the same place as has been stated.........but that is something I WOULD like to know.
03-01-2012 06:16 AM
muddinjk Only use shell power here cost 100 to fill her up but I notice smoother running and will get 19 MPG in busy city traffic
02-29-2012 09:23 PM
BigManAndy Yep, all gas here is 10% ethanol. I usually fill up at the Kwik Fill right near work and only use 87 octane. All North American oil and refined here in the States. On top of that it's still cheaper than the big dogs.

jay-1 I give up I argued with some other gentlemen about a month ago. All I do know is the economy is great around here and farmers are doing great rather then struggling to get by. So yeah for ethanol
