A lot of guys run 89 octane, but a lot of us run premium (92-94 oct). Some see no reason to use anything other than regular, but if every single manu says to use a minimum of 89, I figure they know more than some guy on a forum who will probably be repalcing his equipment every couple years anyway, and just wants to save a couple bucks. For me, the diifference in price isn't that much of an expense if I only use it in my handhelds.
