    Well, I really can't do anything with the car until I burn up the tank of REGULAR my salesman put in! Couldn't believe it when he told me that :doh:. My buddy Bill (new GT) and I were talking about fuel (winter / summer blend) and I mentioned that I was going to get in touch with my salesman and ask him, just for shits and giggles, what fuel he loaded her up with. When he told me REGULAR I almost crapped! Oh well, nothing to do about it now except burn it up. Going to put in a 1/2 tank of premium today. That should help a bit. Anyone know how much power I'm losing running 87 octane??

    Has anyone re-gapped their plugs and how much off were they??

    Thanks,

    What can't you 'do' with your car until it is full of premium? The GT is made to run on regular just fine. I cannot imagine you will be able to 'feel' the difference. Your full throttle runs on the road will still be limited to 5 seconds or less.
