    What gas you use is there a difference in different brand of gas cheveron,shell,76, etc I use 89 from cheveron it cost around $2.65 to $2.89 I feel it last longer and makes the truck respond bttr then on the 87 well that's how I feel interested to hear your guys input thnx :worthless:20161012_205710.jpg

    I use my local WaWa since the gas is priced well, the guys at the fuel island are awesome, and the coffee inside is great and inexpensive.
    Truck runs like a champ on 87!

    I use the 89 octane stuff - I know, I'm a sucker for paying for it over the 87 octane. But, I don't drive my truck that much and a tank of gas lasts me a while. As I understand it, gas loses octane over time so I start out with a little higher grade. Cheers!

    My local pure 87 is about $0.07 MORE expensive than E10 89. This is my 4 tanks (1800 miles currently) and all I have used is pure 87. I plan to do that until 5000 miles, I then will run E10 89 for another 5000 miles to see the different. Not really accurate way to compare since the first 5000 miles is breaking in miles but who cares, right?

    I only use Shell in my Tundra and Explorer.

    There are other great Top Tier gases out there, but some studies have shown that swapping between different gasoline brands on a constant basis can result in the different detergents interacting with one another and possibly contaminating and/or gumming up your system (worst case scenario.)

    How true or exaggerated this is, I don't know. But since there are so many Shell stations out there, it's easy to only use them.

    I run on 87 99.9% of the time. Mostly Shell or Sams Club dino. I've never seen any difference in pep/power (and there shouldn't be) using 89 that is 20 cents per gal more than 87 here in Denver area. A total waste of money IMHO. Truck is programmed to run best on 87.

    Top Tier gas keeps a list of the better brands. http://www.toptiergas.com/ I used gas from the local grocery chain for a while, but the mileage was lower and varied between tanks. I tried E85 in my previous pickup, but there were some serious issues there. I've stayed with the better brands since then and have reliable results and stable mileage.

    87 or 89 depending on location is all you should or need to run in the Tundra. Above is a waste.
    Except for the 100. That gives you an automatic 50 hp boost. The added 7 octane is where you go from ok to amazing.

    I have a 2016 with just 1300 miles. I use 87 octane from valero down here in tx. 1.95 a gal right now. I do know that the higher octance gas seems to make truck alot more responsive. Always been told that if engine doesnt require premium. You dont have to use it. I use premium every few tanks just for cleaning system and to have some fun with the throttle

    I use BJ's 87 gas in my Tundra.

    If I first buy anything inside their big box store they knock an additional $.05 gallon from the listed price. Last time I filled up it was $1.92 gallon with the discount. Been buying all my fuel from them almost exclusively since they opened over two decades ago. Convenient. Never thought about Top tier brands until reading the discussions here. Interesting reading about Top Tier gas.

    That said I have taken the heads off our 89 Ford Taurus wagon because of a head gasket problem and when I had our Miata I port and polished the head. In both instances I did not see a problem with the valves. My last Truck had 125,000 miles when sold and no issues. All ran on Bj's gas.

    I am now a little over 20,000miles on the Tundra and no issues with average fuel economy. 15 mpg average.

    Some more light reading:
    http://www.edmunds.com/car-care/is-cheap-gas-bad-for-your-car.html

    I will stick with my routine based on my history but this will nag me no doubt.

    Now down the road if I ever have cause to take the heads off of the Tundra I will let you guys know what I find.

    It's 108mph. Damn governors. I'm sure there are plenty of safety reasons for this, but there is a whole lot more hp and gearing available for much more.
