    The only thing octane does for your (expensive) car is prevent the engine from exploding. Nothing else.

    If you want good quality gas (power, efficiency, clean burning) you should research what additives and detergents each company puts in their gasses, not how high of octane they sell.

    IMO shell gas is the highest quality. On MY veyron I get the best power and highest efficiency out if their premium.

    Well shell charges more, so it's probably better gas. I'm sure that's the logic your BMW buddies are using.

    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?

    Right hand drive?

    Seriously though, my car calls for 87 octane and I'd assume using a different level would cause predetonation or some kind of timing imbalance/misfire. You can't just put any octane in any car. So if they're switching and I'm correct on my assumption, I'll have to keep looking for a place that sells 87.

    Just keep on assuming.

    The Husky/Macs in Signal Hill has this as well.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. Use diesel, you get wicked detonation resistance, especially for a Veyron cause you can crank up the boost and get 1,000,000+ hp!
