89 octane, since has less ethanol and will not cause lawn and garden tractors to much grief.

It is ridiculous to have to pay more at current prices, so that you don't have to have your lawn and garden equipment break down faster than it should.

Plus, my truck will run on E85, but have to run 89 octane, since if run 87 octane or regular unleaded, the ethanol is high enough to cut 2-3mpg

89 octane has much less ethanol than 87 octane. Wish, I didn't have to, but gives me better mpg, due to less ethanol.
