This is great for people who drive cars designed for 91, but all you Corolla drivers thinking of going there to get this should know that engines designed to run on 87 actually run better on 87 than higher grade gas. Someone did a test (can't remember who, might have been CBC Marketplace) and they tested a car designed for 87 but running 91 or 93 and it had less power and worse pollution than when running on 87.

This doesn't apply to probably 99% of RFD, ha

Location added on the title.

Why 99%? I doubt it. It is RFD btw.

Hmm, 30 km / 30 min drive to save $0.1-$0.2/L? For some reason I feel like going for a driver sigh..

does this usually last all day or do the refuelling trucks show up on sundays? always been curious, might as well fill up but don't want to leave just now.

From an Automotive Engineering Tech, this is NOT true at all. 94, 93, 91, 89, all run perfectly fine in a car designed for 87. It's just wasting money, because no significant benefits in an engine that is running properly and properly maintained.

It's the other way around that is bad for efficiency, emissions, and engine reliability. Never run 87, or 89 in a car designed for 91+ octane, because higher octane fuels is required for higher compression engines.

In simple layman's terms, higher octane is needed for high compression engines to prevent pre-detonation (aka - knock). But high octane in a low compression engine doesn't benefit from the fuel's higher resistance to knock.

Unless you know your facts, please don't incorrectly advise others.

If you know and they knew how engine work, a regular 87/89 engine spec with a high compression ratio will run nicer on 91 (not 93 and above). The Focus 2012+ is a good example.

If this is on it means there's already a truck en route for delivery, when it will reach is anyone's guess

Your idea only matters if you can't afford high octane gas. There are reasons why high octane gas are expensive than regular. I will leave to the pros or teachers/instructors to have your facts straighten out. Though most experts agree that higher than 91 octane is overkill but that wont matter if prices are the same. Research ethanol. And why do regular gasoline has it. And what it might do to your engine.

Is this gas good for lawn mower? or regular 87 fine.
