..maybe "which octane" question can be answered?

Fred,
.. About twice a year (at least) the "which octane is best" question comes up.

I was wondering, now that the ECM map has been decoded, is there any evidence that the stock OEM map can benefit from higher octane fuel?

Thanks in advance,
Dennis

Dennis,

I have not seen any evidence of pinging on the standard, or modified ECM programs. Probably one of the easiest tests you can do to confirm that you don't need a higher octane, is to run a few tanks through and check your gas mileage. If your gas mileage remains pretty much the same as with a lower octane, then you don't need a higher octane.

Hope this helps.
