How much does that extreme octain fuel cost you per, is it "Liter," for you? Some states here have it as low as 85, I believe.

You actually get better gas mileage with the higher octain fuel? Wow, talk about having your cake (extra power) and eating it too (even better MPG)!


That almost makes it sound like it's worth the extra 30c per gallon.

It's a difference in octane rating between the UK and the US, you and most of the world uses RON and we use AKI. If you do your RON# x .95 = our AKI rating, roughly. So your 95 is probably pretty close to our 89

was stationed in Germany for a few years, the gas octane is equivalent to ours...just different numbers.

Does adding Octane Booster to your car do anything beneficial? So what if I get a premium octain tune and then add a can of octane booster?
