I myself haven't heard of any detonation problems. Mr. Lous said these cars have two different table sets depending on what you put in the car, so that would be the reason why and also why it says its fine in your manual. However, I still will never recommend anything other then 93 to put in MY car. Granted it is up to you guys as to what yous want to put in your cars, but keep in mind you can run the risk of knocking, pre-ignition, "RSI" - Runaway Surface Ignition, which is a more serious pre-ignition problem. Run-on, and misfires depending all on how well you maintain the car. (Of which, I would hope you guys care about these cars.) Im sure you don't have that much of a risk now and days as you would alittle whiles back, but still...I like my car. I try to take care of it and keep it healthy so down the road it wont have problems. This is just another step to prevent such things for me.

- 1998 Formula
Whenever I bought my 1998 Formula it didn't come with a manual, and no where on the car did it say to use premium, so I've been putting 87 in it for a year now. I didn't know the LS1 had a 10.1 compression ratio. I'll definitely start using 91, now.

some gas like kroger and wawa are more watered down. if i get same octane at wawa, it is much more sluggish.
remember more power = more mpg, noticably. at least when it comes to gas.
