going to the servo tonight i noticed that the e10 fuel is sitting at about
$1.32!
and the premium fuels are at about $1.40 odd!
i was putting the top line premium fuel in my baby but now im going to put straight e10 in her!
why has the price of fuel gone through the roof !
someone please tell me!
i was putting a 500ml bottle of wyns racing fuel to every tank but with the price of fuel i'll be
using straight e10 until the price drops!

I've been using 100ron from United for over a year. I gain about 5rwkw over 98.
Also use a splash of E85 now & then for a couple more rwkw.
Never had any fuel system issues.

100ron consistantly stays around $1.34 which is less than 98 is. Atleast here in SA.

Yes i do mean Norlunga, Morphett Vale, Christies Beach area !

Also what is Octane really? and what parts of the car can it clean? I filled up with 98 from Both Mobil, and BP and just want to know what Octane is and how the fuel helps clean a motor !

The octane rating of fuel is purely its resistance to knock. It is NOT a measure of the actual amount of octane in the fuel. (hence you can get fuel with an octane over 100)

RON is tested with a variable compression ratio single cylinder engine.
Mixtures of iso-octane and n-heptane are tested. Pure iso-octane will achieve an RON of 100, and n-heptane will achieve and RON of 0.

A sample fuel is tested in the engine and the compression ratio is increased until the fuel knocks. the ratio is then checked against the result from testing the iso-octane and n-heptane, if the sample fuel knocks at the same compression as say a 91/9 mix of iso-octane and n-heptane, the fuel is deemed to be a 91 RON fuel.

To measure above 100ron the graph is simply extended beyond 100 at the same rate of change.
