quote:I have noticed on all the lawn gear I use that it runs best on 89 octane oddly enough. Esp the Craftsman mower I use with a B&S engine, it runs odd and "farts" with 87 octane. All the other gear hates 87 and anything above 91 octane for some reason. It all comes down to the engines I suppose. But my car for obviously being a more sophisticated design does best with cheaper 87 lol
