Just curious if anyone here runs premium gas in their Telluride. I understand Kia recommends just 87 octane, but has anyone run anything higher and do you notice a difference with fuel economy or performance?
And what about folks in higher altitudes? Do you run premium?

I found a video that suggests it might not be worth it.

I used to only use 91 octane in my vehicles because I was always told it was the better choice for my engine. But then I saw this video from Consumer Reports and it was pretty eye opening. Now I primarily use 87 octane, unless premium is required.

For the Telluride I can't see there being much of a performance difference based on the type of fuel. It would be an interesting test though.
