Just wondering if there is any reason my 2012 5.0 could not run on 94 octane? I have a tune as well.

Without a problem man!

Running an octane above what you are tuned for is nothing but good for your Stang! It only has a negative effect if you do the opposite.

Fill her up with 94 and enjoy the ride!

Hope this helps.

I run Chevron 94 octane ethanol free in our GT with a 93 octane v2 race tune from AM. It runs fantastic.
I also run it in my GT500...runs great!!
