I read an article the other day about this program and how reformulated gasolines don't perform as well as the regular gasolines. And that car computers after 2006 are better equipped to compensate for reformulated gasolines. Thankfully this is not an issue here in Oklahoma as we have not joined the program yet. I was about to start running 89 octane real gas than 87. The VTX fuel injection is kind of basic compared to automotive system of late. Here is a link to the EPA program so you can see if your state participates.

It's unlikely the VTX injection system would be negatively affected. The injection system is so basic that the "computer" doesn't much adjust for anything beyond throttle position and air flow. Pretty simple really, pretty tough to confuse.

We run reformulated gas in Jefferson county where I buy most of my gas. I've run 87 octane with no problems & can't tell any difference when I can run Non-reformulated.
