    Healthiest would be 91, but is it really necessary? Probably not - many people do fine with 87 octane and get the same mileage etc. Just gotta test it for yourself and see if you notice any difference - what you really need to do is have someone else fill it up for you at random octanes so you don't have that "placebo effect" ;) - http://www.clublexus.com/forums/es300-and-es330/444979-fu... - many people on this site said they noticed no difference in performance or mileage. - Good luck with the info! - Dale in Twin Falls, Idaho.
