Yes when I use Regular fuel 89 octane. I try to keep Premium in her, but if I'm on 1/2 tank I will sneak some reg. to get me to the next station, no ping when blended with both.

A lot of the small towns here in the prairies only have Reg. fuel at the pumps. I fill up when ever possible in the bigger centres that have Premium.

could only get 89 on a trip in the north but put in a little premium in a backwoods station and it made it worse until my next tankful..never had that before and have had to run regular before

When did it start pinging? With just this current tank of gas or with previous tanks? Do you fill up for the most part at the same gas station? I ask because it may be possible to have picked up a bad tank of gas.
