I use unleaded...But, I put in Super 93 Shell gas on every third fill up for the extra additives it has.

You must use 93 octane in this car. It will not get top performance with anything else and will also ping without Premium.It says on the gauge cluster " USE UNLEADED PREMIUM FUEL ONLY"

87 octaneand no higher octane does not burn cleaner unless your engine has the compression to burn it. It can actually carbon up the valves because you don't have enough heat to use the higher octane. With 10.2-1 compression 87 octane is just fine unless your racing it.
