Tune and gasoline quality

As we all know, in order to improve performance, most aftermarket tunes are very close to the ideal advanced timing. What if you get some inferior quality gasoline into your tank unexpectedly? Will that ruin your engine?

When Ford builds the Mustang, they put a safety cushion into there tune to protect the engine when you use an after market tune you do so at your own risk,if you feel comfortable with that, and have the spare money should something go wrong I wouldn't worry,but for ME my Mustang is stock, as long as I have a Ford warranty,that way there will be no questions asked should the engine fail.

All good points. Thanks.

Anyone has real world experiences on your aftermarket tunes? Did it cause any issues to your engines due to bad fuel quality?

Get a 91 octane tune and run 93 octane. Gives a little extra insurance, and only sacrifices a few horses.
