2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4X4 - Colorado Gas

Hi,

I just bought a new 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport 4X4 (two-door, 3.6-Liter V6 24-Valve VVT Engine, 5-speed automatic transmission). I live in Parker, Colorado. My 30 minute one-way commute is at an average elevation of 6000 feet.

What octane of gasoline should I be using?: 85, 87, or 89

Thanks,

Michael J Titera

You'll get lots of opinions, but I'd run 85. No need to or gain by running 91. I'm in Parker too.

Lowest octane that doesn't ping (which should be 85). Anything higher is literally wasted money and possibly increased carbon deposits.

Michael,

Hello neighbor - kinda! I live in Monument and commute to Denver daily. I have always used nothing but 85 in our 2012 and our 2013. No issues at all.

I am in Fort Collins and I run 85 in my 2013. No issues whatsoever for me. Granted I'm only at 5000 ft.

I do my own wrenching but I've been purchasing my stuff at High Country Performance. No shipping cost and a good excuse to visit and talk shop. Good group of honest people.

I do my own wrenching as well, but have heard good stuff about High Country Perf in Denver. I have been getting parts online at Northridge.

The guys at HCP 4x4 are great to work with. When I am in Colorado, I always stop by.

My only issue with HCP is they always try to push ARB lockers even when I don't want them! And they're pretty pricey.
