Octane in a CSVT
#1292526 - 08/03/06 02:14 AM

Is it required to use a higher octane fuel on an CSVT or can u use the basic "regular" gas?

Welcome . Stick with what is written or suggested in Owners' Manual. A lower octane will have lower power and engine will retard to prevent "knock" resulting in bad fuel consumption. Can't save money there.

Download an Owners' Manual www.fleet.ford.com

Edit. Save money on gas by driving slower (less wind resistance = better gas mileage) .

If anybody wants me dead, please start a new thread with this exact same question. Because the next time I see it asked, I'm putting 87 octane gas in my car, and driving into oncoming traffic!

Canadianballer - If you're such a baller, put the right friggin' gas in your car. I know you "gotz da hoez to take out in dat pimp ride of yo's," but wow.

wow! Someone needs another beer or something.

But to the original poster...Is it really that big of a deal? So you have to put premium gas in your ride, it costs about $2 more at the pump each fill up. Of course it adds up but seriously...If it is that much of a big deal to you, why didn't you buy a Toyota Prius(sp?) or something.

Seriously, you can put 87 junk in your car. They have a knock sensor and an ecu for a reason. But really, why would you do that to a svt? Go grab up a zetec or regular duratec.

Are u talking to me? I wasn't yelling. AFAIK, people post on a forum to get multiple opinions. And it looks like me and tony are the only ones to say he can safely drive on a lower octane but would be better off not. Chill out with them chill out posts.

Take a deep breath, and if you're driving, pull over.

I use 87 octane in my 98 SVT E0 and it runs great. I have had maybe 20 tanks of premium in it since it was new.

Before you puke all over yourself, I should further explain a few things. I believe in agressive maintenance, including the combustion chambers and injectors. In other words, there is no carbon build-up that might agrivate pinging.

Also, I have more experience than I care to remember as tune-up specialist and hot rodder. I very well understand what octane is and how important it is. Even as an agressive driver, my car just doesn't need 91 octane fuel. It does NOT run any better with premium fuel, nor does it get any better mileage with premium fuel. I would not dream of taking a risk with lower octane fuel if it didn't work. In all of it's life, I have heard light trace pinging only two times, and both of those were on hot winter days (we have a few of those in southern California) with winter blend gas at part throttle that went away with only slight throttle increase.

That said, I don't recommend this for all SVTs. My car seems to have a less than stellar factory tune that doesn't optimize performance for premium fuel. Frankly, I'm disappointed. I would gladly trade even better performance for using higher octane fuel. So if the factory tune for other SVTs is more agressive they would be more prone to problems. Also, the 2000 has higher compression and may be less able to use lower octane fuel. Someone that isn't as up on maintenance may have a problem. Someone that can't recognize it when they do have a problem should not try it.

I have driven the car with the Ford scanner on it, monitoring timing, with both 87 octane and 91 octane and cannot see any difference. There is no evidence of the knock sensor pulling timing.

Others may not have the same result.

Please stay away from your car until you can gain control of yourself again. (Don't be a Mel Gibson).

Haha, I knew Big Jim would post here! He's the living proof that 87 octane can be put into these cars, as he's got I believe, well over 200k miles on his SVT, using almost all 87 octane. But Big Jim, are you doing much performance driving? Aren't you still on the stock clutch? I suppose if you drive under 3k rpm's, you could get away with it, but I don't like being BELOW 3K rpm's.

My post was a little over the top, but I like to be a little different in how I tell people to SEARCH! And yeah, a sense of humor couldn't hurt some of you.

You've classified yourself as a noob. Noobs are informed at registration that the search function is a viable tool. Your question would have been answered 8000 times with a search. You don't like my sense of humor? That's fine. No need to bring the race card into it. Maybe had "baller," mistaken for "balla." Good luck with your purchase. Oh, and avoid the East Great Lakes forum if your spine is toothpick thin.

N00b are you crying? There is no crying on the CEG forums.

Have some respect. You can't just come on here asking stupid questions without even trying to search, and then say "F*CK OFF" to a veteran.

Go back to Canada there eh?

Maybe they don't teach English very well in Canada because they are worried about trying to teach French-Canuckian as well... You have a lot to learn about spelling, grammar AND RESPECT!!

I agree, lock this thread and ban the n00b: Canuck baller boy!

Dropped it at a mechanic that had done some work for me before. He is saying it is the guides and tensioners.

How much should something like that be? What is the cause of this sort of problem?

I'm starting to see more problems with my car. I realize it is getting to be higher mileage... But I have replaced the O2 sensors, the Speed sensor, clutch, hub and bearing (and it needs a 2nd). I'm starting to think that instead of replacing everything, I should just get a Honda or something with a good reputation for high mileage. I love my Contour though. We've owned it since we bought it new.




hey, mean...what was your first post? Sounds like a stupid noob question to me. So, shut up and stop hasstling the noobs...and try helping them. Might actually get some people to stay on the boards.

Go back to Canada there eh?

Maybe they don't teach English very well in Canada because they are worried about trying to teach French-Canuckian as well... You have a lot to learn about spelling, grammar AND RESPECT!!

I agree, lock this thread and ban the n00b: Canuck baller boy!




sorry for casuing hassle...it was an honest question and im sure that u didnt always ask an origional question...sorry about the language or should i say "excues my french"

and thanks one more time for those who have stuck up for me

and EX-MEAN...u shouldnt be talking about respect when u go knocking an entire country which u dont kno much about..

i think we all could use a little RESPECT!! (veterans included)

IM DONE! CLOSE!!!

Don't know of any Silver turbo SE's. Stazi has a silver turbo SVT, with 19" wheels. Pretty recognizable car, especially with his new front mount I/C.

Canadianballer PM'd me. There was a misunderstanding. All is well, and no hard feelings. So Canadianballer, welcome to the site, thanks for the apologies, and have a good time.

Haha, we might still be thinking of different people. Stazi is married, and has a deep Australian accent. Has an Austrlian license plate on the front of the car as well. I wasn't aware of him having a brother close by. Could be him though.

But Big Jim, are you doing much performance driving? Aren't you still on the stock clutch? I suppose if you drive under 3k rpm's, you could get away with it, but I don't like being BELOW 3K rpm's.

My post was a little over the top, but I like to be a little different in how I tell people to SEARCH! And yeah, a sense of humor couldn't hurt some of you.

Obviously you have never been on a ride with me driving. I had an 80 mile round trip commute today. I was over 6500 RPM about a dozen times.

Do you remember the Tom Kruse movie about NASCAR racing? Do you remember how he was tearing up equipment, especially tires, until the crew chief helped him to be a finise driver? He could still win races without tearing things up once he understood the equipment. That's the way I drive. That kind of comes with the territory when you spend a large share of your adult life repairing cars.
