True that. My old VW bus actually runs smoother and gets better MPG on the dirtiest nastiest gas I can find. High octane does not run as smooth for some reason, I say this from actual experience and calculating MPG I have know idea why but I get at least 2-3 MPG more with nasty gas. I also get about 125 miles to the gallon of oil, it is probably due for rebuild, or at least a tune up.
