I am, it's just embarrassing when my friend gets better mpg in an A6 3.2 (26 me vs 27 them, both almost the same route each day)

One other thing, my local gas station (holiday, top tier) sells their 87 oct for the same as their 89 since they're both e10 so I put some in for the hell of it... not gonna hurt anything, and I swear it's just slightly more torque-y in some situations, is this possible or placebo? I know some cars can adjust for slightly higher octane.

TWO OTHER THING, what is "Timing Adv" in Torque (OBDII reading app for android)? It's from like -5 to 70 usually.
