it should be more the 100 hp. my wifes civic i think only makes 110 hp. pretty sure n e ways.

An interesting bit of news.

Echo SSEi runs premium in Arizona (91 Octane)
I run premium in CT (93 Octane)

When they say premium.. which number do they really mean?

In my neck of the woods premium is always 91+. Most cases 91-93. Midgrade is 89-90, and regular is always 87.

I've seen gas stations with 4 choices, the 4th is 83. I dont know why, but I have seen it.

I can get 94 octane in the city (Calgary), but it'* 1.5 hours away. And even that isn't the norm, 91 is typically "Premium" here.

I don't think car manufacturers make any distinctions.

Welcome back, from a fellow vet!!!!! I AM so grateful for your service.

Also, congrats on the news of a comming baby girl!!! I have just been blessed with my second child, a baby girl who is 2 1/2 weeks old!!!

And, I too agree that the ssei is the way to go. I have a lot of room to spread out even with a carseat in the back. And the gas milage is pretty good as well.
