As others have stated, octane in itself has nothing to do with fuel
mileage. But increased octance may allow for more spark advance and
I had a '91 Caprice that I typically ran on 87 octane, but did run on
91/92 octane depending on price. I would typically get 2-3 mpg
better(28 vs 25) on the higher octane fuel. I no longer have the car,
but the price difference between grades has grown to the point that it
probably wouldn't make sense any more anyways.
Try it and find out. But it is unlikely that it will make enough
difference to acount for 30c of price difference.

You MIGHT get better MPG but you will not get better MP$.

I heard about this gimmick high Octane, I already spent $00-$00 on all
sorts of additives and high octanes gas to see if I can save moneyl. I
ended up with +/- 2-3 miles. Now I am so glad I've found a better solution,
now I doubled the mileage (or pay 1/2 price what I normally paid in the
past.) The engineering in our car is wrong, that's what caused Global
Warming, and that's what took all our dollars.
I will not give this idea away freely, perhaps some ones know about this but
they just wanted to make big bugs on their Petrol stock, I don't know or
perhaps they are dumb for many years.

As soon as your brother deposits that multi-million dollar General Mumboola
Nigerian inheritance cash that he managed to smuggle out of Africa into my
bank account, and I can collect my share for doing nothing but give away my
entire financial identity, I'll be happy to invest with you....
That, or when I reach week four (or was it six?) and my $.00 investment in
the chain letter starts to pay off big bucks!
BTW - Nice twist on working "global warming" into a snake oil pitch......

Well, it has generated about as much comment as the great toilet roll wars
of the 80's;>)
