Your 2008 Tahoe Hybrid is designed to use 87 octane. You chose to pay more for Premium. That is fine but you said gas was $6-$7 a gallon in LA not premium. The VAST majority of cars run on 87 octane and even a lot of the new turbo engines will run on it at lower power.

Even Premium can still be found in LA for less that $6 a gallon.
