Hi my brothers Jeep Grand Cherokee got totaled from being rear ended and he was in the market for a new car. My cousin has a 96 Riv non SC and my brother and I loved it allot so when he was out looking he stumbled across a 97 Riv supercharged ands we got it Monday for $3,400 so far he loves it he calls it his "Granny car with balls". He is not in to forums much but I own a Dodge Intrepid and have been on a forum for that car going on 5 years now and love it I hope to have the same experance over here.

Thanks. I was wondering if 89 octane gas will work or do we have to use atlest 91.

Once you're buying 91, the higher the octane you go the more mpg you get, and in the long run costs less money. 93 or 94 is best if you can find it, but it's safe to run 91.

I've heard this said before. I'd like to see it proven. I've not noticed a difference. On a long cruise, I can get the same fuel economy using 89 as 94.

And this information came from which Owners Manual or Service Manual or GM Service Bulletin?
