Question about 1997 Ford Thunderbird LX
Regular unleaded unless it is sick. 87 octane is what the manual calls for, You may have to upgrade if youve done engine mods but if not, regular works just fine.
If you get "ping" on regular. get the problem fixed, any more octane than it requires to avoid knocking is just wasted money.
Octane is a measure knock resistance not anything to to with the power the gas produces.
