I've been driving mine for about a month now and have roughly 2,300 miles. I've been using the 92 premium at the pump. I noticed a station near me has ethanol free octane 93. I thought well it costs more but why not? So I filled up from empty. Drove a few miles home. The next day I started it and it seemed it had more growl at the exhaust. Later in the day driving it, I felt sparky and gave it some pedal and it just sounded so good and the response felt better. Just wondering if it's all in my head that it sounds better with noticeable change in response. Anyone else used ethanol premium but then tried ethanol free 93 and noticed anything?
 
Id like to know the answer as well!

Probably because it's hard to find in most areas. My county of 230,000 only has 2 gas stations that sell ethanol free, but in general terms I would think that not having your 392 run on a 90% petrol / 10% vodka blend would enhance performance.
 
I'm pretty positive I notice a difference in response and sound. My friends agree to difference in sound. They're not allowed to drive it. So they can't vouch for response.
 
If I had easy access to ethanol free gas I’d buy that every time!
 
I use Costco premium. It runs fine. Use it on my 735 HP Vette too. It’s a “top tier” product insofar as cleaning agents. Unless I’m on a trip that’s all I feed my beasts.
Know whats reallllly cool about our 392's???? Once the gas light comes on, you can literally watch the gas arm slowly gooooo down. It was hella noticeable. So noticeable that even with 4 cranky highschoolers in my jeep I still went out of my way to hit a wawa. There was no way I was making it thru the drop off loop. Insane.
 
Yeah this ethanol free octane 93 i found near my house has agents too. They call it the premium of premium. After this week of using it, I'm a believer that it is the premium to the ethanol blend premium 92 that I've been using.

If you're looking for ethanol free premium....there's an app called pure gas that lists stations in your area offering ethanol free gas. Some stations are lower octane, I assume for lawn equipment and boats, but you'll find quite a few with octane levels generally found in the premium grade.

Thanks for the your input! Ive got one pretty close by that I can purchase 89 oct ane for my LJ! Four hour drive to Stations with 93 and higher octanes.
 
question, fuel tank is tiny and not wanting to use a trailer to haul gas any suggestions for external mounts to the spare tire or other easy to put on and take off for extra fuel rigs?

Sometimes when I'm traveling with the motorhome and I take my big tire pads to park my motorhome on, I use a hitch rack on my jeep to strap the pads in to keep the dirt out of my RV storage compartments. You could find a rack size to match what you need and strap them in. Fairly easy on and off. Make sure the rack is rated to handle the weight.
