That makes absolutely NO sense....how about the average of the two, like 89 sound?

I found this which should shed some light.
Using higher octane than your car needs is a waste of money. And yes, mixing 91 and 86 half and half will yield approximately 88.5. If your car requires regular, anything up to approximately 89 octane is good. Many service stations have only 2 tanks, but dispense 3 grades. They get mid-grade by mixing regular and super in the mid-grade pump, and there are no problems

"That makes absolutely NO sense....how about the average of the two, like 89 sound? "
It sounds as if you are thinking about math. You have to remember that this is chemistry, not match. Do a Google search. You will find that mixing different octane levels will produce some interesting results. But I will correct one point. Back in the day when there was LEADED fuel mixing two levels could produce higher octane levels but with UNLEADED it is closer to an average but still higher than what you would expect.

I did research...also work at Ford in fuel systems for 15 years! It does not produce 93 or 94 octane as mentioned above..
#920 of 947 High Speed Vibration
Oct 01, 2008 (6:49 am)
Recently purchased a 2007 G35 with 25,000 miles. I noticed that about 65 mph there is a noticable vibration that gets real pronounced at 70 mph. What should I have the dealer check? Tires? Front end?

first thing to check is wheel balance...if it starts vibrating at the steering wheel at high speeds, wheel balance will be the first thing I will check. Could be other factors, but wheel balance is a good cheap place to start.

It is under warranty - just tell them TO FIX IT:) Serious, tell them the problem and let them fix it - should not have to explain to them where the problem is. Could be many things.

I think it might be a wheel also. I noticed that if I drive a long distance at high speed then the tire pressure light come on but goes out when I slow down. I think the vibration in the wheel or tire is causing the tire pressure sensor to malfunction.

Can you give me an update on your situation? It might help my arbitration
