My Roadtrek has a Chev. 6.0L engine. The owners manual suggests 87 octane so that's what I use. The engine runs well with that grade and has lots of power in WV and VA mountains.

Your 16.6 mpg in the mountains sounds pretty good. My mileage @ 65 mph is around 16.5 mpg on fairly level highway but drops two or three mpg when I get in the mountains.
