The Results: 92 vs. 87

February 24th, 2011 at 9:13 am

Back on November 22, 2010, I decided to start a test using 87 octane gasoline instead of the recommended 92 octane gasoline like the owners manual states.

The original plan was to test with 5 fill ups using 87 octane gasoline.  I ended up testing with 8 fill ups.

The different between the gas mileage while using 92 octane gasoline and 87 octane gasoline is almost unnoticable.

So, I fill up with 87 octane gasoline now instead of 92 octane gasoline.


Negative Mud

Well, the conditions we were expecting in Oscoda, MI were not there.

The temperature was not warm enough to keep the mud.  Instead, we were welcomed with mud colored ice.

We were smacking sub frame off of the chunks of ice that were built up in the middle of the road.

The other sucky part is the lack of photos that I took while were were up there.

We will be leaving tonight for a weekend trip to Oscoda, MI.  Not camping outside this time around though.  Staying with a friend.

She informed us that the roads are beyond jacked up.  Mud is a foot deep.

She said that you CAN’T STOP.  You must keep going, flooring it down the street.  Otherwise, you will get stuck.

This should be interesting!!!!

Photos to come after the weekend is over!
