My 98 V seems like it has a rougher idle with the standard 87 octane gas. When i put 89 octane gas it seems to run smoother. The rough idle isn't real bad but it is noticeably smoother when i put the middle grade in it. Maybe i am just weird

Placebo effect.

Run 87 and stop wasting your money.

chucnguyen : if you drive a Mercedes or a higher class vehicle, you can buy Premium.

If you're driving a Mercedes, you are probably viewing this forum to see how the hired help are doing!!

Like all the rest have said, if you're driving a V from 2000 on, just use 87 octane. If you want to give away money to the oil companies, tell me & I'll use the oil well in my back yard [all Texas residents have one, don't y'all know?] to make your own vintage gasoline & deliver it hand-wrapped in hand-crafted cut glass decanters.
