Oh let’s just leave everything stock then cuz the manufacturer always gets it right
Don’t know what manual your looking at but Gen 2’s call for minimum of 87 and they run just fine on that
Per the manual, 91 certainly isn’t required. It is however recommended for maximum engine performance. How much performance you lose is debatable. Engineering Explained on YouTube did a test fairly recently and iirc, there was about a 10hp difference on a F150 with the standard (non high output) version of the 3.5 Eco Boost.
It wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume the HO version in our Raptors would lose at least as much, if not slightly more.
“Premium fuel only” in my neck of the woods that is 91.
Try them and if you don't like them I'll buy the plugs from you for your price paid.
Nope not a rookie.
This isn't my first rodeo. I'm a farm kid. Driven bigger, badder, more expensive, that drank far more petrol than this thing.
if you were to drive with a light foot and didnt care about max performance you could certainly run 87. These things do have knock sensors and will dial back timing til the engine is protected. for 80% of my driving i could use 87 , but i dont bother
Annoyed that midgrade here is 89, and premium is 93. I don't mind putting premium in the motorcycle, but it only holds 5 gallons. Not looking forward to that first fillup.
same here and i tried them all,
I have only ever used Shell V-Power, and will only ever use Shell V-Power for my performance vehicles
