After reading your TECH Q & A question from the new Dec. 2019 Panorama regarding Ethanol-Free Gasoline, I was wondering if it would be OK to use 87 to 89 Octane Ethanol Free Gasoline in my 1986 911. I currently use Chevron Techron additive every 3,000 miles. Your article seemed to think it would be better to use lower octane ethanol free gas with additive as opposed to ethanol gas at higher octane. Thank you for your help and as a PCA member since 1987 I still look forward to our great Panorama magazine. Thanks again.
