Default Re: Octane

Isn't the rating of a gasoline just a reflection of how much it's refined?
or in other words, how much less it is like oil or diesel fuel and more like gasoline?

So then we come along with two cycle motors and add oil back into it-

I've used a little middle grade, but it doesn''t seem to make much difference

of greater consequence seems our oil to fuel mixture.

I've always run Carb cleaner/ gas treatment/ injection cleaner- which is all pretty much the same I think- "Petroleum distilate" highly refined gasoline
in my cars the last 35 years and they never gum up
