RX_7 and Reformulated gas

The car is a 1981 mazda rx7--12a rotary engine--everything stock. Can I safely run reformulated gas in it?
Thanks.

Use the recommended grade(s) suggested by the owner's manual. Start with the minimum grade (87 in most cases)and if no heavy pinging is noted, the gas is fine. If it pings, step up a grade. If it still pings, try another brand of 87. Some brands affect some vehicles more than others.

A 1981 Mazda RX7 is nothing special as far as fuel requirements go and should be fine with any brand out there.
