Doyt's and many other's responses that it's OK to run 87 octane in my car 
have prompted me to give it a try.

This is great!  I've been spending lots O' money on gas, with Chevron 
Supreme every single fill up.

I guess since it's definitely not high compression, the need for 
high octane isn't as great.

What about the much-advanced-ignition-timing-for-performance issue?  Is 
that affected by octane rating?

didn't like Adnoh's.)
