    Default Husky switching all pumps to 90, 92, 94 now?

    I've been hearing rumors that Husky is making all their pumps 90, 92, 94 now. And I believe this is no longer a rumor. I hit up the Husky beside T&T Honda on Barlow and they got 90,92,94 now as well. Finally 94 in the NE, lol. I didn't check at the one behind the 36th St Crappy tire, but I assume it's the same deal. And the prices are equal to 87,89,91 stations. They have new posters up saying "90 Octane for the price of 87"

    I just took a trip to BC, and the Husky in Golden had these numbers too.

    It depends on the station, the newer and more modern ones are doing the 90,92,94 thing but some of the older ones arent. Example the husky/mohawk on 14st downtown is offering 89,92, 94 IIRC where as the husky/mohawk on 8st is selling the 90,92,94 grade.

    I'm quite sure pretty much all of them have it now. I checked Barlow and 32nd Ave, they got it as well.

    ^On a side note:
    Hey and is that you Rumi? It's ray.

    Somebody please trash the hell out of me if I am wrong but I thought husky/ mohawk gas was all 10% ethanol which I thought Honda did not recommend to use?

    I wont trash the hell out of you. Husky/Mohawk has up to 10% ethanol. Re-read your manual and you'll see that it's ok to use anything up to 10%.

    I pumped 94 on Thursday for the hell of it, car seems to idle smoother and have more responsiveness. Hard to say how much is in my head.

    I've ran 1000kms on premium and regular in my V6 toyota engine. I didn't notice any significant performance gains, but my mileage was worse by 2.5 l/100kms on premium vs regular.

    Make sense since it's more resistant to detonation and has no reason to be in an engine that doesn't require premium fuel.

    The octane rating is a measure of the resistance of gasoline and other fuels to detonation (engine knocking) in spark-ignition internal combustion engines. High-performance engines typically have higher compression ratios and are therefore more prone to detonation, so they require higher octane fuel. A lower-performance engine will not generally perform better with high-octane fuel, since the compression ratio is fixed by the engine design.

    The octane number of a fuel is measured in a test engine, and is defined by comparison with the mixture of iso-octane and normal heptane which would have the same anti-knocking capacity as the fuel under test: the percentage, by volume, of iso-octane in that mixture is the octane number of the fuel. For example, gasoline with the same knocking characteristics as a mixture of 90% iso-octane and 10% heptane would have an octane rating of 90. [1] Because some fuels are more knock-resistant than iso-octane, the definition has been extended to allow for octane numbers higher than 100

    Many high-performance engines are designed to operate with a high maximum compression and thus demand high-octane premium gasoline. A common misconception is that power output or fuel mileage can be improved by burning higher octane fuel than a particular engine was designed for. The power output of an engine depends in part on the energy density of its fuel, but similar fuels with different octane ratings have similar density. Since switching to a higher octane fuel does not add any more hydrocarbon content or oxygen, the engine cannot produce more power..
    Octane does not turn your car into some race machine. If you have a P.O.S. Stick to basic.

    I run 94 in my car. 91 seems to trash my fuel sensor... A full tank will show 3/4 on 91, but shows full on 94... even had the sensors replaced... twice haha.

    actually.... in HOT summer days, i heard it's better to run a higher grade anyways, and the reason makes sense... since it's really hot out and the engine can hardly cool down, you will automatically have higher chance of knock, so to avoid having the computer retard timing, running a little bit better fuel is a good thing... i'm sure that it wont hold true for everyone, but it's something to think about when it's really hot out and you feel the car being a little sluggish

    Why would they do this? I would think 87 sells 100000x more than 91

    The ethanol mixture boosts it's octane rating. And husky sells 91 at the same price as for example Esso sells it's 87

    Hey guys,

    All you guys have been talking about honda's....Well I drive a Veyron. How does that affect me? I talked to the scientists at bugatti and they all say to stay away from husky cause its bad gas.... I've been just filling up at shell.

    What do you guys think?
