|Ditchdoc||The wiki quote is accurate. Octane has nothing to do with cleaning that's the detergents job and different brands use different detergents. It all has to do with engine compression ratios. High engine compression require high octane or it will ( diesel) self ignite without the spark plug just from the heat of the air/fuel being compressed. A engine may even lose performance by going to high or to low.|

I don't think that it makes it cleaner as much as makes it run smoother. Here's a quotation from wikipedia:
"Higher octane ratings correlate to higher activation energies: This being the amount of applied energy required to initiate combustion. Since higher octane fuels have higher activation energy requirements, it is less likely that a given compression will cause uncontrolled ignition, otherwise known as autoignition or detonation.
A fuel with a higher octane rating is less prone to auto-ignition and can withstand a greater rise in temperature during the compression stroke of an internal combustion engine without auto-igniting, thus allowing more power to be extracted from the Otto-Cycle."

Here in Dubai we have Super (98) and Special (95).
I've been told by a few people to use Special and then every 5 or so visits to the pumps to use Super as it cleans the system a bit better.

Type of Fuel in Middle East
I'm currently in Bahrain. They offer two types of fuel here, Jeddiay (or something like that) and Mumtaz. From what I understand, Mumtaz has a higher octane but the Jeep typically sticks to regular fuel (Jeddiay).
Which fuel should I request when I pull up to the gas pumps?
