Default Petrol question

Im interested what quality of fuel do you use in the states

For example in my country you can get on the pump 95 octane 98 octane and 100 octane.

For racing we where useing firstly 102 octanes and later i think it was 105 octanes (but these fuels had special racing aditives)

I have a feeling those octane figures are RON and not AKI (anti-knock index) like we use in the States. In California at least, the AKI is usually 87 for regular, 89 for plus and 91 for premium. You can sometimes find 93 AKI or rarely 100 AKI at the pump. In other states, you can get 93 or 94 (roughly equivalent to 98 RON).

No they are AKI (anti knock index) because in europe you could only buy 2.0 wrx sti and in USA you had 2,5 STI versions and i asked the some people why is that and they expalined to me that it is because you have ****ty fuel and that on a 2,0 litre engine they couldnt get the engine work whit same power as in europe. Explained to me by a mechanic that helped built the imprezas and EVO s in Itallian championchip. And i always wonderd what kind of fuel do you have there
