Default Octane question AP Stage 2

Any thought as to whether or not you could run mid grade gas on Stage 2 mods with the stage 1 program. I am at 6000'. I know turbo's compensate for altitude, but not 100%. So with the altitude effect, better flow from the downpipe and catback, a little milder tune with stage 1, and not running wot, I would think you could safely run 89 octane. Premium is up to 2.45 a gallon and climbing.....how can I continue to support my mods addiction?

I'm just joking around with you but lets think about this logically. The difference between 89 and 91 octane is .10 to .15 a gallon. If you fill up your 15 gallon tank the difference in your gas bill will be 1.50 or 2.25. Is is worth the risk to save a couple of bucks?

Not to mention the mileage loss going to a lower octane...you'll most likely hae to fill up more often running a lower octane and spend more in the end. JMHO

Thanks for the feedback. You spend a few grand to get the performance up, then start crying about a couple of bucks a tank full. Not much logic too it, just some days more flush with money than others I guess.

yeah spend the money. I was having issues and I dont know if it was fuel related or not. I had a full tank 10 gallons 92, 4 gallons 87, after driving real hard, the car didnt seem right. Parked it, its was misfiring on all cyclinders, then it wouldnt idle. Anyway my 3rd cyclinder injector went out so that was my fix. What the gas had to do with it breaking I dont know, I just know feed your car the good stuff. Oh yeah I was running AP Stage two at the time. I'm dreading going down to california, thier gas sucks.
