For the STE I usually go to Sunoco and get the 94, but occasionally I'll stop at the BP or Meijer and get 93 because its more convienient. However, the Cutlass Calais gets 87 octane. Filled up the tank yesterday for $19. I have put twice that in the STE before!

You realize that octane boost only raises octane by 0.1 rather than a full point?

You obviously didn't hear about the HUGE Shell recall on bad gas that was ******* up people'* cars a while back in Florida, did you? I live down here; trust me, it was one heII of a fiasco Thank God we didn't get a shipment in when they were sending out the bad gas. I would've had to work that weekend! LOL!
