Unless you advance your timing, use 87 octane
just like the owner's manual says. No sense in throwing your money away on higher octane fuel.

As far as brands go, I've never noticed a difference.

I always wanted to dyno a car using different brands and grades of fuel to see if there is a difference.

A motorcycle magazine did a test like that comparing pump gas to pump gas + octane booster and race gas. You'd be surprised what they came up with! Granted, the motorcycle engine is in a much higher state of tune, but it proved a point. Gas does matter....to a certain extent.

I doubt the HP differece would be significant in a car like the Sentra though.

I've tried several brands in my car, and I've never noticed a difference. It's all been "winter" fuel though. They add ethanol into the gas here. In summer, I should be in better shape.
