They should stop making it and make more regular unleaded. Maybe the price of gas will go down.

I don't think I've ever bought mid-grade before.

No, None of my vehicles' manufacturers recommend mid-grade. Yes, get rid of it.

There's a station near me that sells marine-grade gas; it is E0 mid-grade gas. I use that for my lawn equipment. But one of our cars uses regular and the other uses premium.

There are some fuel-injected vehicles that require 87 AKI at all altitudes. I have one of them, and I'd be buying midgrade at high altitudes. ASTM D 4814 sets forth the areas where 85 AKI can legally be sold as regular.

Only if they feel it's better for their vehicle. Gas is gas! Regular works just fine in most vehicles.

No, most manufacturers seem to recommend regular or premium. The only reason I can think to run mid-grade, is if your vehicle is having trouble running on regular and you don't want to spring for the liquid gold or buy a newer vehicle.
