I started this thread after reading an article in European Car that showed a dyno increase in h.p. as the result of using premium gasoline where not required. In summary, I wrote Car & Driver to suggest they conduct another test, quoted in an earlier message.
All to no avail, and I'm signing off. I don't know the answer definitively, and probably never will . C&D never reacted.

A journalist would like to speak to someone who fuels up with 85 octane and has experienced engine issues or a weaker performance at lower elevations because of it. If you use or have used 85 octane, and would like to share your story with a reporter, please send your daytime contact info to predmunds.com no later than Wednesday, June 20 at 2 p.m. Pacific/5 p.m. Eastern.
