Understanding octane ratings
About octane ratings
Octane rating is a measure of a fuel's ability to resist ‘knock.’ The octane requirement of an engine varies with compression ratio, geometrical and mechanical considerations, and operating conditions. The higher the octane number, the greater the fuel’s resistance to knocking or pinging during combustion.
