Only 91+. It is a high-compression, turbocharged engine - it would likely kill the boost and retard the ignition if it ever heard detonation.

Yikes. Around my area, the difference between regular and premium is usually $1/gallon. I get the "if you can afford the 70k car you can afford the fuel" comments people always make, but man, its steep. In the Chicago area, we are talking ~$4 vs ~$5/gallon. i haven't put premium in anything that asks for it for years without any issues, but I don't have any turbos, I have the disco and Lexus/Toyota V6's that ask for different octane in different cars and model years. I maybe notice 1-2 mpg hit, maybe, but that is definately not worth $1 for that difference.

Interesting. My F150 2.7 Ecoboost gets about 24 mpg if I'm not in a hurry and I keep the speeds down to 55-60 mph. It falls off quickly above 65. My mixed is about 16 mpg, mostly around town. Thankfully, it runs great on regular. I only run premium in it when towing, as the manual suggests.

LOL
That 9000 mile photo I took at 62 mph was on a busy freeway merge, driving in a right-most lane that's about to end, between a whitehair in a Buick and a garbage truck.
But, speaking of the F150 gas mileage - is it measured at the pump or calculated by the ECU?

I've adjusted the AFE bias so the ECU mpg reads true to pump. Doing ~75 I'll get about 19. I don't drive faster than that, so I don't have data at sustained 80 or 90mph. Whatever it is, that's a lot of wind drag.

"curated"

:ROFLMAO:
Judging by the number of Grenadier owners in SoCal heavily tinting their windows, this move by Ineos is perfectly justified.
What can we do.... For every light-colored D110 on the street with steel wheels and decent tires, there are two dozens black ones with 20" rims, a saddlebag, a roof rack, and a ladder.

Negative. That's for the zonies :)
Seriously, all my vehicles had and still have clear windows.

I will say, tinting your windows in a place like SoCal seems more sensible rather than ostentatious
In general not a fan of tinted windows. The Rangie originated in SoCal and came with tint when it arrived here in PA. Had it removed.
However, when living in Brazil (São Paulo / Rio) the 110 had a dark tint on all the windows for heat as well as for safety.

I took a scroll through all the pictures thinking "where are the big tires?" then realized they do have the bigger tires on them. Just goes to show how these vehicles look "right" with the larger tires. I would like to see one with 37/38's. At that size it might look more like they have actually have an upgrade if not being compared side to side. it is pretty cool that you can get to 35's with just a 2.5" lift assuming no trimming.

I don't think there's any trimming at all. Narrow 34s (255/85R17) fit without lift and without rubbing.
With light-colored wheels, you see that 32" factory tires look small.

I’m not a fan of tinted windows and always loved our D1 and current RRC for lacking that feature. However, when the decision point came I reluctantly ordered the heat reflective privacy glass and it does work. Jumping into a parked vehicle (NJ hot/humid/direct-sun) the Gren does feel to have a considerably lower temp than any of our other vehicles.

LOL...they're on a roll

https://ineosgrenadier.com/en/us/grenadier-1924

Belstaff shares our vision to build products that take on the outdoors. And engineer them to last, for people who want to do more. We’re marking their first centenary with a first of our own: Grenadier 1924. A limited-edition vehicle commemorating and celebrating 100 years of an iconic British outerwear brand. For those who want to push the limits.

This Ratcliffe guy has an odd fascination with jackets.

I think Elon Musk should debut "The Members Only" line of Cybertrucks. Eye-catching bespoke and bold colours of the rainbow. Unique badging by world class jewelers stuck all over the damn thing. Only the finest quilted charmin interiors. Illuminated sill plates by Gucci. Diversity and Equity Included in every vehicle. For those who...you know....want to push the limits.

I am glad I got mine how I wanted it, before the gimmicks become mandatory :)

I think the bare-bones basic Grenadier is an awesome truck. Why do they have to gay-it-up with all the flowery stuff?
