Anyways, the octane rating of 87 is specified to avoid knock. 89 and 91 will also not knock, but why pay more for the same performance?
I've never heard of any oil company claim that they have additional cleaning detergents between two different octanes before. I'd find it odd and suspicious if they did.
Also keep in mind, it is a government requirement for oil companies to include detergents. Any advertisement pushing that their gas has detergent is a null argument. ALL fuels have detergents.

Octane = Fuel's Abality to resist detonation (spark knock)
Now my Chevy, has higher compression, so that NEEDS the higher octane...

I'm waiting for a CEL ...

Doorless + Topless = Less Weight = Better Stop/Go MPG
Doorless + Topless = More Drag = Worse highway MPG

SoCal 10A owners.... mileage question (may apply to other regions that run ethanol)
Just curious what my fellow SoCal 10A owners are seeing regarding mileage...
Figured this deserved its own thread since I believe the mileage in Southern California differs from other regions that have less traffic and no corn or additives to keep the air clean in their gas. We are unique here in SoCal... Besides our funny gas, there is always traffic, always stop and go, our terrain varies from mountains to flatland....etc
Im about to hit 4k and I can't seem to get better than 15.5mpg no matter what blend I use. I find it hard to stay in "eco" here in LA.... unless you are in some heavy traffic or its 3am.
Trying to get some answers from other 10A and/or Rubi owners since we are all about the same weight...
So ill start...
