Most cars will run just fine on 87 octane unless the manufacturer requires premium. Using a higher Octane gas will not get you any better gas mileage or any other benefit besides just waisting your money.

Sadly, we have no real winter here. We always use the highest octane.

i don't really think it matters as long as there is no moister in your gas tank.
