I drive a 2010 Charger with the Hemi for my work and it was new when it was issued to me. It had a loud tick and all the guys I work with could hear it and thought it was a lifter or something bad. After several trips to the service center i learned it was the injecters (at least that was the final dignoses)

I've run synthetic [Amsoil 5W-20] since literally day one [I drained and changed both oil and filter upon bringing it home] so that's maybe why I've never experienced the notorious Hemi tick.

I too ran 89 exclusively for almost a year straight; prior to switching over to 87 every third fill recently. I've seen no difference in ANYTHING since switching over; no tic, no performance difference and no MPG change what so ever! I made up my mind just this week that I'm switching over to 87 exclusively from next fill onwards. At least until this blend goes MIA. This winter-blend fuel is pathetic for MPG on these Hemi engines.

Like I was mentioning to another member on the phone recently, I've usually lost close to 2PMG at worst in the past on previous rides with winter-blended fuel. My MPG has dropped BELOW 3PMG on this truck with NO noteable driving conditions and/or habit changes. These Hemi engines and winter-blend fuel simply do not like one another..... regardless of octane grade.

The worst I've ever experienced, period!

I dunno.... maybe it's the fuel rather than the Hemi engines?

If the sound goes away when it warms up it is probably your manifold.

Personally i wouldnt run a higher octane gas. It could damage your cat and other internal parts, produce unwanted knock and not burn efficantly as good ol regular.

There is a reason the manufacturer recommends certain fuel grades to be used.

Not to mention, not sure why moving to mid-grade or higher would help with a engine tick....but again this is my opinion.

maybe its an exhaust leak. if its louder when you just started the truck then slowly goes away when it reaches normal driving temp it might be it.
