Yeah I run 87 but I put octane booster in at every fill up so I guess I could say 91. I can't justify paying 4 bucks a gallon for premium in a car that is 27 years old. Cheaper just to buy a 2.50$ of octane booster and add it to the tank. And yeah the vacuum leak is extremely small but if it's one thing Ive learned it is that it doesn't matter how small the vacuum leak, bc it will still mess things up. I run 10W30 castrol high mileage part synthetic oil. But yeah it does kick down off the biggest notch right when I start it so that is working properly. I just have to tweek the choke a little bit. Other than that I just have to let it warm up for a minute if I want it to operate completely smooth. Besides that it has tons of power and runs great.

Synthetic oil doesn't burn, so it will foul up the plugs on cars that where built long before synthetic oil.

If I had a new EFI OBDII motor, then synthetic oil is the way.
Old carb motors...nope.

If you look closely though almost ,key word being almost, all oil now is part synthetic. I didn't even know they (castrol) changed their high mileage to part synthetic bc when I first started using it, it was bc it was thicker and not synthetic. Thicker oil = more protection for a motor that has over 100k on it. And it is part synthetic not full synthetic.

I use whatever oil the car was supposed to use originally. And since none of mine use synthetic none of them get it.

I would think THAT'S the car that would need 91
The newer cars don't care as much.



GTX High Mileage is all I use.
91 octane only.
My 5th loves it.

That's what I do now. I used to be tempted to put synthetic in the older engines, but not any more. Just more frequent changes than the synthetic cars.

It operates just fine on what I put in for gas and the octane booster as well as the oil I have been using. And where does it tell you exactly what oil to use? I know it tells you the weight the oil should be that you use but thats it.

When your planning on tearing the motor apart as soon as you get another DD you can justify not paying out the a$$ for premium in such an old car lol

I've got a soft spot for any old Mopar engine.
I treat my smogger 318 and my slant like gold.

Today's bonus (speaking of 91)
The Shell I go to was out of the 87 crap,
So they were selling 91 for the 87 price.   :biggrin:

I use the same, but next time look at the label right under or above where it says 10w30. It now says PART synthetic. Key word being PART, not full synthetic.

I saw that too.   :doh:
It's almost impossible to get good ol' oil and descent gas these days.
I'll have to check a bottle of straight GTX and see what it says.
If it's not part synthetic I might start using that and just do more frequent oil changes.

It really is fine if it is part synthetic, as long as it is not full synthetic. Full synthetic is a major no no in carbureted motors. I have been using GTX high mileage for 4 going on 5 years now and have had no problems. Still burns a little bit when I start her up for the first time everyday. (valve seals) and doesn't foul up plugs or anything. All my plugs were just changed after putting 30,000 on them and all looked great except for cylinders 5 and 7 which have the bad valve seals. Just a little black thats all, but not fouled.

Yeah that's true,
Going on at least four or five years for me too.
Never had an issue with the GTX high mike either.
I just get ticked that they keep messing with our oil.   :rant:
