I just ordered a 2019 equinox premier 2LT. The recommended gas is premium, however the sale's person told me regular unleaded works fine? Anyone here using regular on their 2LT?

I have a 2018 with the 2.0 and it says premium recommended but I rarely use it. With other cars I have had that said the same thing it just lowers HP a bit and I haven't noticed anything different running regular as opposed to premium.

I am really shocked that many of the new turbo engines from the various OEM's are not flex fuel rated. E85 has a 100 octane rating and I buy it for about $1.72 a gallon. I have no turbo gas engines, but all my vehicles are flex fuel and all of them are using E85 exclusively. Ethanol is used in many race cars.
