You can use 87 octane, but first let me give you some food for thought, when you use lower octane than recommended the knock or ping sensor will ****** the timing to accommodate the lower octane fuel and prevent piston damage, this causes a loss of fuel economy and power, so the real saving is very small if at all, but yes your car will run fine in all but very hot climates, like the southwestern states. I hqave a Corvette, it calls for 91 Octane, I have run 87 in it to save money, but the fuel mileage drops 3 MPG, so I gave that up.

I put regular gas in my 1999 lincoln town car and now it's running rough, what do I need to do?


Is the check engine light on ?
Normally the computer will try to change the timing to compensate for the lower octane of the fuel. Once you use half of the tank you could put premium in and mix it.
But if the check engine light is on and you have a miss, the problem could be something other than the cheaper gas.

What type of gas should I put in my 1998 Lincoln Town Car Executive Series? 87, 89, or 93?


Any regular gas is ok for your type of car. But I suggested once a while when you top up the gas for your car, it is better to top a higher grade gas. Because higher grade gas will have better gas combustion and it help clean your fuel injector. You do not have to top full tank on higher grade gas. I will say maybe about five gallon should be ok.

Is premium gas a must for the regular 4.7L V8.


Your jeep has two engine options, one was a standard 4.7 V8 and the High Output V8. Below is the recommended octane fuel rating.
Unleaded regular, 87 octane (R + M)/2 - Standard;

Unleaded premium, 93 octane (R+M)/2 recommended - High Output

Best way to check is by looking at the gas cap. If it does not say "Premium fuel only" you should be safe. Higher octane rated fuel is used for higher compression motors, and I dont belive that your engine (my guess is the 5.4 V8 should be around 9:1 compression) needs the high octane.
