Does using 98 octane in prove your gas milage over 93 octane?

NO, it does not... there has been a lot of mis-conception about this topic and being an engineer have been told several times, and have indeed mathematically shown that octane does not affect the efficiency of the engine. the octane rating is simply a rating that shows a fuels resistance to detonation and nothing more. You can confirm this by doing a little research on the Otto cycle (4 stroke standard gas engine) and understanding that when 93/98/87 octane fuel is burned, it releases the same amount of energy. the reason that this myth probably exists, is because higher performance (and higher efficiency) engines use higher compression ratios and have a tendancy to detonate lower octane fuel (knocks). also takes longer for the gas to ignite.

If you're using 91+ octane fuel then theres no point if your car is stock.It IS possible its still knocking even on 91+ but if you're never push your car, no need to worry. If you ARE hard on the throttle, using 93/94 octane would be ideal unless you can get someone or something to scan.?

91 octane petrol will ignite at a lower temperature and burn faster, which can cause knocking in an auto engine. Lead compounds were added at one time to raise the octane rating, but recently engines have been redesigned to work on low (<98) octane petrol (or gas in the US colonies)
