What octane do you most often use in your E46?

Which octane of gasoline do you purchase most often when filling up your E46?

I am curious how many people use the recommended 91 vs lower octanes.

Discussion strictly optional since there are threads on this already.

93 or nothing. I miss the days of being able to buy Sunoco Ultra 94, sometimes in the summer months I'll add 3 gallons of Sunoco Race Fuel. That ends up making ~Roughly 94 1/2 Octane, and not cheap. Race gas in my area runs about $9 a gallon.....

As good of gas as they have at the pump! Usually 91 is the stuff!
