Hi Chris,
Welcome to the Corvette Action Center!
Your car doesn't have any special fuel requirements so whatever it runs best on will be fine.

Hi Chris,
Welcome to the Forum and the Corvette World. I run 93 Octane but in my boat I do add "Relead" to the gas as those motor's are pre lead free. Valves are suppose to last longer...
