Default 87 vs 93 octane fuel Raptor

So does anyone see any noticeable performance differences between running 87 and 93 in the Raptor?

And go.

absolutely a noticeable difference.

You paid over $60k for it, run the good stuff in it.

Man I feel like an idiot. Here I am putting 87 in the thing because I don't really care but for 40 hp what the hell is wrong with me

Next time at the pump the good stuff.

Damn that impressive. I've always heard there's about a 20hp gain using premium in the EB's but that's insane.

20-30 hp is what you gain on the Gen1 f150 and the gen2 that is in the non raptor.

The raptor has some different components and a different tune. It most likely adds more timing when running 93 than the non raptor f150 does.

if you tow anything, you'll definitely notice a difference between 87 and 93.

I haven't towed yet in 17k miles, but I notice the difference between 87 and 93 on the butt dyno.

I never noticed 40 hp...... It appears that’s with a tune, not stock.
