I don't have the owners manual in front of me but believe it says will run on regular
grade (2004 model), also agree with the comment that it will give slightly better performance with premium grade. I have always used premium grade on my Cadillacs (98 required it) I am planning to check the owners manual and suggest you do the same if you have one or call Cadillac customer service and they will probably have an answer for you. With gas prices headed through the roof it may be time to experiment with a lower grade to save some money.

Really interesting post GEO9, sorry more people are not motivated to share their
Cadillac information and experiences at this site.
#1879 of 2635 TOOK 2004 DEVILLE FOR ALIGNMENT AND NEEDED ONE!
Sep 04, 2005 (8:09 pm)
As mentioned in an earlier post my steering wheel was always sitting a little left of center. I dismissed it as crown of the road. Finally decided to take it in for an alignment check. To my surprise they claimed it needed alignment both front and back. I bought the car with a little under 15000 miles on it and the previous owner
must have done something to cause the car to go out of alignment. Hope perhaps I can save a little on fuel cost now that the car is properly aligned. The wheel now sits on center so they must have done something, cost with tax $ 76.00.

The hosts get a bit testy when you post links to other sites...................
Alignment huh? $76 plus is the going rate now a days. Lucky you don't
have a full size GM truck. They are a major job for a alignment. Some
plugs have to be knocked out etc...etc..........aka $pendy !
Good thing i only keep them 3 winters and trade them................
My Devilles I keep at least 5 years and rarely align them and have never
had any tire wear..........Or have any major/failures or repairs either !
Just a darn quirky cruise control............LOL!!!!!!
Sure enjoy that V-8 power tho and the 25 mpg. avg I get as long as I
keep my foot outta it !!!!! My truck is lucky to get 15 mpg just around
town. But I NEED a full size x-cab to plow snow and tow my caMPER
Have a great Labor Day all!........................................

The 93 sounds best, but has the 4.9 engine, not a northstar. However, that is not bad. If you are really looking for fuel economy, a Cadillac is not the best idea, but it would do better than a heavy chevy. Used econo cars are probably priced higher than they are worth now. I have noticed that the Eldorado is also commanding a premium price relative to other Cadillacs in the used market.
