Correct, Hi-test is not recommended. There is info about the fuel requirements in the owner's manual plus many years of experience on this forum...

Every Winter I run 90 octane RecGas ethanol free in my 1800R, and the deceleration pop goes away... (Big Shots with Hyper Charger and no programmer) If it wasn't so much more expensive I would use it exclusively... Go Figure 'Eh?
