'76 2002, should I use 87, or higher?

Do I need to worry about avoiding ethanol?

please try a search.

High octane. at LEAST 89 I would say. You can get away with lower grade if you retard timing, but why risk pinging/damage to save a few dollars?

avoid e85, but the ethanol/petrol mix isn't going to do any major damage.

Arco Regular. Works fine. Ive run it for 20k so far on my 02, have had the head off with no issues.

My Dad's 454 pickup has run on it for the last 100k miles.

If it aint pingin dont be a worryin!
