I know that BMW says to use 89 octane for fuel and i do all the time. But if i used 87 would it make all the much difference? Cuz where i live 89 is about $3.27 a gallon compared to $3.09 for 87. This 89 is startin to take a tole on my wallet and since im a teen i dont exactly have a high paying job. so would it make a big difference or no?

it can actually, running 87 in the engine won't necessarily hurt the engine but gas mileage and performance will suffer. if you can i'd run the 89 or higher as much as you can, i'm a teenager as well and where i'm at 93 octane is about $3.06 so i'm not hurting as bad as you but i still feel the pain
