Do you use Premium (91) or Regular (87) in your ZTR?

Just curious as to which fuel you use?

I've been using regular (87), but I always add an ounce of Sta-Bil Marine to every 5 gal container.

I usually get 91 because for a tank it's only a dollar more and is seems to be better for the engine. I will be interested to see what everyone says.

Octane for equipment

This is what the manufacturers call for, so that's what I use. Oh, yes, it's also ethanol free gas, and at least so far have eliminated gas related problems I used to have.

Why the difference? I forgot to mention I use 91 in both handheld and my mower.

93 in the mowers and had helds. Sure it costs more but all the equipment seems to run better. I put 87 in the truck though.

I don't blame you about the truck. They eat up gas no matter what you put in them. And I was mistaken, I actually use 93 in my equipment, not 91
