    Re: ly7 facts?

    the owner's manual for my '07 3.6 states:

    "If your vehicle has the 3.6L V6 engine (VIN code 7), use regular unleaded gasoline with a posted octane rating of 87 or higher. For best performance or trailer towing, you may choose to use middle grade 89 octane."

    mine runs great on 87
