Another interesting quote from his link is, "Using a higher grade than is required will not usually increase performance. However, if the vehicle is equipped with knock sensors, as many late model vehicles are, a higher octane grade may enhance performance."

But congratulations on having better fuel.

Hey it is an octain raiting not a RON ( sorry I thought it was the same thing, I'm by no means an expert in this stuff ) it may not always make a difference in fuel economy, but in some cars it defiantly dose. ( my old corolla went from struggling to get 600 Kms to the tank on 91 to 750 with 98 no worries with a lot more power, it also didn't ping off it's head )
