If the owners manual states PREMIUM put premium in it, if not might as well put in some diesel, water, koolaid i don't know why even try different grades of fuel. It is built and designed for a specific fuel type.

its amaze me some people still think like that maybe you should consider get honda civic or hybrid instead, imagine thousand of $$$ you will save every 40 thousand miles using those cars instead. come on now, u re getting lexus GS, don't be cheap.

maybe you should email Lexus and ask them to re-write the manual about your "theory" and how much customers/users will save $$ every 40 thousand miles using 87 instead of premium. you might win an award....who knows...

but the question is are you using "tap" water or "premium" distilled water Because if your using "premium" your paying too much. Its FREE from your garden hose
