Yes, you can do that. But 89 burns slower than 87. It will definitely be 
better than 93 (or 91) and will help in the process of clearing any deposits 
left by the use of 93 (91). If your engine isn't really bad (a lot of 
deposits and knock) then by switching right away to 87 you will speed up the 
process. If you get serious knock from 87 then using 89 for a while is a 
good idea. One or two full tanks of 89 and then switch to 87 and stay with 
87. And taking the car on a highway is a good idea for every car that only 
sees city driving. Any DeLorean that is only used to go to drive-ins or a 
lot of city driving will be very happy with occasional hour long drive on 
the highway using 87 gas. Just like running is good for your heart, highway 
is good for the engine :)

It's ok Dan, I know that. I did not take it as that. Like I said before, 
there is a lot of confusion when it comes to gasoline grades and I am glad I 
can share my knowledge with others... and help some DeLoreans in the process 

If you have any other questions concerning this subject don't hesitate to 
ask. I'd be glad to help you out. I've spent some time working at an 
automotive lab doing research on things like gasoline use, emissions, engine 
oil etc. I'm glad I can share what I have learned there.

Take care
