Is everyone using 87 octane in their 2.4?

I've have used both 87 and 93. I haven't seen much of an increase in power or mpg. I've been averaging about 320-340 miles per tank and about 21 mpg.

Just wondering if 89 vs 87 might be better not only in mpg but running a cleaner engine.

I do drive in the city when I go to work, but it's about 25-35% of my drive to work. The tank is smaller than the Optima/Sonata as well though.

I think using 93 on the nonturbo is goin over. But that is only my opinion!
