I haven't found mileage to be any different, just noticeably better response. > I like good acceleration and > handling but I will not be pushing the car to it's limits. Well, I burn premium (93 octane around these parts) all the time, but the owner's manual should list a minimum number - I don't know it offhand. But, my point is, it *will* take advantage of the extra octane rating by giving you better performance, if you choose to pay for it. Dave Hinz
