New 2018 Tundra from HTX

What’s up everyone. Just bought my new 2018 TRD Off-Road this past weekend and I’m excited. Got the Calvary Blue color and so far have not seen any Calvary Blues in Houston...so far. Will post pics later. Hope to see you all around. Any Houston folks here??

Welcome, neighbor! I'm jealous of that color, it's beautiful. I've only seen one over here, and I may or may not have drooled as I drove past it.

Here she is! I was lucky enough for the salesman to drive me in the back lot, found this beauty in the corner.

Congrats! I love that color.

Did the dealership tell you that you had to put premium gas in there, or will 85 octane work just fine (here in Utah, your choices are 85, 87, 91 - or 88 for ethanol free). My buddy was told 91 octane only. Is that true?

I was not told anything like that. Iím going to most likely use 85 octane. What model did your buddy have? I have an SR5 with the TRD Off-Road package not to be confused with TRD Pro which Iím unsure of the gas requirement.

87 is a good way to go...not sure I'd use 85 octane...especially at higher elevations...

The higher elevations allow you to use lower octanes, such as 85. The higher the elevation, the lower the chances of detonation are. I’ve run 85 in my Tundra in CO and UT and have had no issues.

There is no concern for detonation from a 5.7 Tundra engine...why are you worried about detonation?

Given the Tundra 5.7 has a CR of 10.2, no I wouldn't use anything lower than 87 octane (Toyota recommends) even at altitude because if you go back to sea level with 85 octane it could cause detonation. Besides, I'd probably be the one to forget to fill up with a higher octane fuel on my way down the mountain.

If a guy wants to save a few cents and use 85 octane at a higher elevation, have a nut.

I wouldnít know about high elevation. I live in Texas. Itís as flat as my back. On a serious note, anyone down south not recommend using 85?
