I was going to ask that same question, because I had just bought a 2003 mazda 6, i had put in 89 because it had no gas and i need to get the Car home, and a engine light came on, but the Car drove great. Now I know to use 87, it didnt have a owners manual when i got the car, that is why I sign up here. But, she has 195,000 miles on her, so, do I still use 87 for the higher mileage ?

If I read your post correctly, running 89 kicked on the check engine light? Went back to 87 and the light went off?
Switching grades should not/will not do that.
