Wow - that's news to me. I have a 2012 700 and I have never run anything but 87 - performance is good and no ping. If I knew that to be a requirement I guess I would have to upgrade to the higher octane but so far so good. Come to think of it I do occasionally run ethanol free which is 90 octane but that stuff now runs almost $3.50 a gallon...
