    RXP has higher RPM's with regular unleaded.

    I had to fill up at the lake with regular unleaded cause they don't have premium. My RPM's are low around 7800 give or take. Put regular unleaded and it immediately jumped up in 7900. Is there something wrong that would cause this? I would figure premium would give me higher instead of regular.

    It's going to give you more than just 100 rpm if you keep running it...

    What you mean? Regular should have more rpm than premium?

    Yes, and then one would most likely experience the realization that procrastination lead to engine annihilation, causing said person to seek medication, leading to Vicodin induced constipation, only to be remedied by belated defecation and that somewhat disturbing, yet necessary, master… never mind!

    Better to run the 91+ octane...

    I don't see a problem. It's got a knock sensor. It will back off on the timing and give a bit better bottom end.

    Yep, that's what the ecu is for. Regular gas won't hurt the motor. Just the performance.
