Can't or won't? What's the compression ratio in that car anyway?

That, or is it the timing that requires a higher octane?

That's why I'm curious, some cars it's recommended to run high octane fuel, some cars won't run at all on anything lower than 91. And some people just like to run high octane fuel because it makes them feel better and they like burning money. I'm guessing Wray isn't one of the latter but I could be wrong...

How to build a fence in Mexico.

I like this idea. Looks easier than my method, but will take longer

the old dead cactus have new cactus planted between them, we saw several long fencelines of cactus.

compression ratio is 10.4:1

its rated for 91+ octane because if lower octane is used it sticks the ecm in a lower octane/performance table and causes the car to not perform to its potential.even after high octane is used again the ecm is still stuck in the low octane table and a fuse pull has to be performed to reset the ecm back to its high octane table
