In Georgia almost all E0 is 90 octane. A very few exceptions here and there, but not many. It's also far more expensive, so pretty much power equipment and boat fuel only.

I would go with a 250 minimum, however, if I really wanted to go with a 150 it would need to be HDPP. Would upgrade to the biggest rear swaybar I could find. Would also add airbags. Next I would...

Question about the "regular" in ElPaso. My understanding is that much of the Texas "regular" is below 87. True? Could have sworn I was looking at pumps showing 86?

You guys should try shopping a 6.5' bed supercab. No trim level higher than Lariat available and no HDPP at any trim level. There is no HDPP frame available at that wheelbase in any configuration.
