Default Re: Regular, Super, or Premium Fuel? Thoughts?

Yeah- isn't higher octane gas simply just more refined? Outside of any additives the oil companies may claim, isn't it sorta like carb cleaner and gas treatment distilate, just DISTILLED into a finer grade from crude oil?

Doesn't that just mean that it's gas with less oil in it otherwise? and then here we are with out 2 strokes, ADDING oil to lubricate a motor with no crankcase otherwise.
Doesn't make much sense to spend more for it-
You probably have to add MORE oil to it then, and pay for that!

correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think I am.

P.S. I've been using distilate carb cleaner additives in my cars now for 30 years and I think they work great, especially in heavy cars with engines that aren't blown out a lot at high speeds.
