My 06 GT has a premium only sticker on my tank door so Im assuming it wont affect your GS at all.

you can do it but its a waste if your not running nitrous or fi
That's not true! it cleans your internals and you'll feel how good your motor starts running! I've been running premium in my gs for like 6 months and it's amazing the difference after 2 tanks :)

i just got my 06 GT 6spd a month ago and i put a full tank in it 2 weeks ago and ran it till the light came on. when i filled up it said i filled up 13.6 gallons so if we have a 17.7 gallon tank like what ive read.. we have 3 gallons when the light comes on.

Not to be a dick, but i call BS on this one. I ran it for a long time too, switched back and fowarth many times. It's not even enough of a diffrence to tell. Definately not enough to justify an extra 5$ every single time you fill up. Now, if you did it and you tuned for it, i would imagine that to be a diffirent story. Our cars are tuned for 87 from the factory, run it on it unless you have some other reasons to (boost, ect.)

I only use premium just to keep the engine as clean as possible if nothing else.

and with a blower on the engine I use a TON more gas - I don't even want to know what my MPG is.....probably scary bad. yes, like Lisa I head STRAIGHT to the pump when that little bitch starts to glow. it's not good to let the 6G75 run out of gas I am told.

What Joey said.

I only run Premium, it does make a difference, keeps your injectors and valves and all that stuff much cleaner -- it's worth it. And I ONLY use Chevron, or Shell if there's no Chevron around -- but never any other brand.

GS: regular
GT: premium

it's not rocket science, is it? both engines are tuned for each type of gas respectively... regular is bad for the GT, premium is a waste in the GS...

as far as running low, it's been said above... it's bad for injectors and fuel pump... i try to fuel up when i hit half or a quarter... i never understood the point of running it till the last drop, or only filling up $20 at a time... either way, you'll end up spending the exact same amount of money for the miles you drive.

and here on my trip to work (300 miles), there's only 1 gas station in the last 180 miles, and a lot of shit can happen (wildlife, fire, accidents), so i ALWAYS fill up half-way through regardless of how much gas i got left...
