The politicians mean well...but somewhere, somebody made a coupla bucks by
adding the phrase "modifications which make the system other than stock are

illegal to use a lower rated octane than recommended by the mfr, right?
Wouldn't the gas station be allowing you to generate more emissions by using a
lower grade gas?  Arrggg...sorry...I'm getting a little carried away.
