Yesterday at Caltex i asked the guy the octane rating of supersupreme we have here and he said its 88 ..
Therefore, Why do we need to add high Octane
I get ur point that it becomes responsive
But i am trying to find the logic behind this,
Since, Honda has advised Octane rating : 88
Again Wikipedia Says :
Many high-performance engines are designed to operate with a high maximum compression, and thus demand high-octane premium gasoline. A common misconception is that power output or fuel mileage can be improved by burning higher octane fuel than a particular engine was designed for. The power output of an engine depends in part on the energy density of its fuel, but similar fuels with different octane ratings have similar density. Since switching to a higher octane fuel does not add any more hydrocarbon content or oxygen, the engine cannot produce more power.
