You should run premium (any brand) even though it has ethanol since the 
only non-ethanol you can get is low octane.

As I told my daughter with her '65 110 PG, just pay the money for 
premium at the pump. It will save dollars in replacing holed pistons!

The coupe runs fine on regular but I always used to put that highest octane Sunoco (93?) gasoline in the convertible and then it wouldn't ping.  I can't find it at the closest Sunoco now that I've moved.  That and the fact that I'm becoming more and more concerned about ethanol prompted me to fill up with ethanol-free regular.  The only source for ethanol-free gasoline here only sells it in regular grade.  Anyway, now my engine is pinging going up hills.  Should I use an octane boost additive from the local auto parts store?  Is there one that anyone recommends?
