Actually, octane has to do with detonation. It doesn't necessarily hurt performance.you do realize that higher octane actually hurts performance right?
You want to run the lowest possible octane an engine can run on without knocking.
The higher the octane, the slower the burn, and cooler the flame.
Huh..where did you get this info from.. first I have ever heard of that... Its says on the tank NO LOWER than 93 octane gas...
This is not true as I understand it. when dealing with pump gas, the lower octane fuel will have a quicker flame speed, as well as more BTU per gallon, ounce or whatever you want to use to measure it.Higher octane gas does NOT have a slower flame propagation, NOR does it have less jewels of energy per unit volume than lower octane fuel. It only prevents early dentonation. In thermodynamics, the Ideal Gas Law states that, PV=nRT where P is pressure and T is temperature. Thus when pressure goes up (read high compression ratio), the temperature goes up and premature detonation is more likely. That is why high octance becomes necessary.
He's getting just as much or more power by running 100 octane vs. 91.
