gas

I run 87 during cold weather because it burns easier and hotter, and 91 in warm weather since it runs cooler, but with less power. If I am going on a long trip with mostly highway speeds, I will run 87 in warm weather...

then again I could be doing it all back asswards because I have 87 and 91 and the way the burn confused...
