usually 87 but depending on gas prices I'll run 93 occasionally, I heard from someone at the chevy dealership though that it's not good to run 93 in our cars, but the car feels more energetic with 93

I only run premium. My wife used to work in the petroleum industry, and knows what really goes into gas. We would never run anything else.
