Hey All, I had a 4.6 2011 Genesis previously that I ran non ethanol in per the dealers recommendation cause of the pinging I would get. It cost me $350 once to clean out the ethanol residue. Now that I have a Equus with the 5.0 I wonder if I should still be going ethanol free. It has less of an octane rating than what the manual recommends and I don't wanna have to add octane boosts if I can avoid it. What does everyone else fill up with?

89 octane in my '13 5.0 rspec and '15 5.0. Now, that my g80 sport 3.3tt is tuned, I put 93 octane as recommended by Tuner.

I have a 2011 4.6L and I use 93 octane from either Sunoco, Shell, or Wawa usually.

89 on mine...just plain regular... they say it costs you about 12hp...but horsepower is not why I bought the car... of course it still have over 400 ponies...
