I finally did some research and found out it had to do the the refinery. The put an additive in the crude oil to allow it to flow easier in the pipes. This substance has similar characteristics to sugar; when it is hot it flows nice but when it cools off, it will crystallize. Apparently, the mystery substance is not fully processed out of the lower level fuel. When I switched to mid-grade, all my problems disappeared.

When I go off-roading at higher altitudes (>10,000 ft), I will top-off with the high end fuel. I never had it ping, but I think I get a little more umph when climbing in the thin air.
We arent asking about your Chevy. This is a hummer thread.
