My theory is that unless you're getting a lot of knocking, 87 is fine. That being said, try 92 and see if it changes.
Today I lowered the oil level to 3/4 on the dipstick. I read some post somewhere that having too much oil in the crankcase caused a guy poor economy. I think he said that the manual even says to do that... doesn't sound right, but I'll try it.
