This will largely depend on where you live though.87 for me. I’m not paying 40 dollars for a tank of 93 when I can spend 20 dollars for 87 which is specified by Hyundai to use anyway.
Hey I’m not judging those that do use it. More power to you. It can definitely benefit in areas like where you live where it gets really hot. But it’s not like running 93 gives you slightly more power like fords. I filled up with 93 last week. It was 40 dollars, far from the extra 5 that everyone claims. Maybe if it gets super hot this summer I’ll run it but as of right now I’ll just stick to 87. But obviously like you said, price differs greatly by state. If I lived in SC I’d probably get 93 all the timeThis will largely depend on where you live though.
I find it funny how the people defending the 87 are so **** bent on using it because "Hyundai says so". They're just saying the car can run on it, they aren't saying is has to run on it...
Location, location, location. I just calculated it out, and the station where I fill up it costs me roughly $4-5 extra per tank to go premium. I almost always fill up when I am close to 1/4 tank left. Maybe $220/year which in the grand scheme of car expenses is nothing. Especially if you are modding.It was 40 dollars, far from the extra 5 that everyone claims.
It seems like all of my cars have gone through their fuel faster than anything else. Especially their diesel. My TDI Jetta drank it. But had I gone to BP or shell, I’d get almost 800 out of a tank vs 600-650. I only used QT for their diesel cause it was guaranteed aka if my HP fuel pump went out it was on them haha.That's what I use, no issues.
There isn't supposed to be a noticeable difference. However, if you monitor timing retardation across all cylinders you will absolutely, positively see a difference between 87 and 91/93.Used 87 since day one, switched to 93 once with no noticeable difference.
Getting 34-35 consistently. 80% highway
So it’s an exaggeration. I pay 23 a fill up usually for 87. Paid close to 35 for 93. Not that I’m hard up for money but I’ve never seen a group of people so obsessed with fuel lol. **** I had a 13 5.0 built for the track and was pushing almost 500 wheel on 87. In extremely hot climates it does help, but not required.That's not double the price. It's not even half again more.
The ecoboost also has injectors in the intake tract which keeping the valve train clean - the G4FJ does not. It's not about being obsessed with fuel, it's about engine longevity, for the 4th time.So it’s an exaggeration. I pay 23 a fill up usually for 87. Paid close to 35 for 93.

Also I’m willing to go out on a limb and say I put more miles down on the road than most people on this forum. Over the last two years I’ve logged just shy of 200k. That’s not including my personal vehicle. I have a general idea of how fuel effects a vehicle, especially a turbocharged GDI one. I drive a v6 ecoboost 350 transit everyday. Heavy loads (by that vehicles standards) every single day. And over those last two years it’s had regular maintenance and 87 fuel from top tier providers
