Pump Fiction | Originally broadcast November 2, 2012 The price for premium gas blends is as much as 15 cents more per litre than regular gas. Gas companies make the pitch that premium's better for your car. While it's true that some car makers recommend putting premium fuel in their high-end models, what about most of us who drive regular cars?

Octane vs Cetane Number - Gas vs Diesel

What is octane rating? What is cetane number? Gas & diesel ratings.

What is cetane rating? When purchasing gasoline or diesel fuel you’ve likely noticed the selection of numbers available to purchase, whether it’s 87, 91, 98, etc. The numbers shown are the octane rating for gasoline, or the cetane rating for diesel fuel, and these numbers indicated properties about the fuel you’re buying. The octane rating tells you how resistant a fuel is to knock; another way of thinking about this is how much can you compress that fuel, mixed with air, before it ignites from the heat and pressure. A Cetane rating is the ignition delay of a diesel fuel. Both scales originally were designed from 0 to 100, though Octane ratings above 100 are certainly possible. The scales get their names from the hydrocarbons Octane and Cetane, both of which represent a rating of 100 on their respective scales. The video brakes down both of these concepts in detail, and how a low or high rating affects performance and efficiency characteristics of an engine.

New Study Shows Premium Gas Isn't Always Worth It

If your car recommends premium gas, should you use it? Europe 98 vs USA 91 Octane? - https://youtu.be/zf-OYXlhJis Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Related Videos: What Is Knock? - https://youtu.be/maZyPJIOknE How Ignition Timing Affects Power - https://youtu.be/R1tPT7anjwk Higher Octane = More Horsepower? - https://youtu.be/gqvhaPLuTPI How Diesel Fuel Systems Work - https://youtu.be/i15oN5Xdu10 What if you put gas in a diesel vehicle? https://youtu.be/jtozuGGVFqg From AAA's Press Kit: "According to new research from AAA, premium gasoline offers some benefit to select vehicles, but is becoming increasingly expensive for drivers. In recent years, the price gap between premium and regular-grade gasoline has risen from a historically steady 10 percent to 25 percent or more per gallon. While past AAA research has shown no benefit in using premium gasoline in a vehicle designed to operate on regular fuel, new testing indicates that some vehicles – those that recommend, but do not require premium gasoline – may see increased fuel economy and performance under certain driving conditions when using the higher-octane gasoline. Unfortunately, the high cost of premium gasoline may outweigh that advantage for many drivers. As a result, AAA recommends drivers weigh the potential benefits against the cost of using premium gasoline, if their vehicle does not require it. “AAA’s testing reveals that drivers could see modest gains in fuel economy and performance when opting for premium gasoline in vehicles that recommend, but do not require, the higher-octane fuel,” said Megan McKernan, manager of the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Automotive Research Center. “Those seeking the maximum capabilities of their performance-focused or utility vehicle may see some benefit from using premium gasoline, particularly over the long haul.” In partnership with the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Automotive Research Center, AAA tested a variety of vehicles that recommend, but do not require, the use of premium (91 octane or higher) gasoline. Although drivers of these vehicles are unlikely to see any benefit from using premium gasoline during typical city or highway driving, a combination of laboratory and on-road tests were performed to simulate extreme driving scenarios such as towing, hauling cargo and aggressive acceleration. When using premium fuel in these vehicles under these conditions, AAA tests found that: - Fuel economy for test vehicles averaged a 2.7 percent improvement. Individual vehicle test result averages ranged from a decrease of 1 percent (2016 Audi A3) to an improvement of 7.1 percent (2016 Cadillac Escalade). - Horsepower for test vehicles averaged an increase of 1.4 percent. Individual vehicle test result averages ranged from a decrease of 0.3 percent (2016 Jeep Renegade) to an improvement of 3.2 percent (2017 Ford Mustang). - According to national averages, the price difference between regular and premium gasoline is approximately 20 to 25 percent, or 50 cents per gallon. - The modest fuel economy improvements found in AAA tests do not offset the higher cost of premium gasoline."
