    Since I’m bored I guess I’ll toss in my 2 pennies,... I lived at pretty much 0’ elevation for a long time and went through a few Tacomas. 91 always seemed to “feel” a little better driving around so my 02, 05 and 10 all lived their life on 91 with no issues and I was happy. Now I live at 7,000’ elevation and just got my 17 a few months ago and wondered how all those feet of elevation under my feet played an effect on the octane needed. Everything I found to read said 87 works better when you’re this high,... ... Anyway, when I was taking delivery of the 17 the sales guy said, “It’s got a full tank of 87.” Cool. Ran that out, put in another tank of 87, by this time the truck and I are getting along and figuring out how to not do nose dives at a stop sign. Out of curiosity I filled up with 91 on the 3rd or 4th tank and a couple after that. To me, and at 7,000’, it did seem a tad more spunky on the 87 so probably in a couple days I’m going back to the 87. There it is,...
