On the Disco 1, you can run 87?

Mine pings on 87 something fierce.. and the dealer as well as the manual states Premium Fuel Only.. Which I hate since 87 is $.40/gal cheaper.

87 Is a NO NO, it will carbon up your engine in a big way, Rovers are none for this and short lived valves and lifters.
Not that this caused your noise, but just a thought. Did you get a check engine light? What happens when you go full throttle 1st. thru 3rd. foot to the floor? Has long has it been since you changed the fuel filter?
Just looking for ideas for you,
Mike J.
