Re: octane

Euros?!?!?! What?!?!? :) I'm in Africa. I even think it might be
RON, they don't list it on the pumps so it might be (MON+RON)/2 or it
might be RON. Uhm...and at the track we get 104 RON...they just used
it to test the new Porche 993 (911). :) And then there are those cans
by BP marked "racing fuel", smells nice once burnt, very sweet smell.

Another point about all this octane talk, when upping the octane rating
used and leaving the ignition timing as is, don't you need to put in
plugs that give a bigger bang (more energy)?
