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

The Real Mininana's real mininana demands 90, but if the price differential is unfavorable, will try to sneak by with 89

I use midgrade all the time. My car requires "91-Premium" as the manufacturer calls it. Therefore, what I do is fuel up with 93-Premium for half the tank and 89-Midgrade for the other. Voila. 93+89/2=91.

I save money by not having to fill up my tank with the more expensive 93, which the manufacturer is not asking for.

To the gentleman that said they should stop making plus and making more regular. there is no such a thing as plus gas. No one make plus. It is 50% regular and 50% super. Stations that have 3 or 4 tanks they buy plus and at the pipeline truck gets filed 50/50. Stations that have two tanks they only buy super and regular and they have mixer in the pump that generates plus.

I don't need it and don't buy it. They don't make mid grade, they get it by blending regular and premium at the pump.
