punctuation might help reduce the "tire-grap" factor of this post.

If you're saying that the people who are using lower octane gas will lose power after the reflash...I'm not sure if that's true. The ECU already reduces power to deal with inferior octane gas. I'm sure the people who are already having their power reduced by the ECU for using the inferior gas would rather have no pinging for their trouble, though.

If, on the other hand, the point you were eloquently trying to make was that people who aren't getting pinging would lose power with the reflash, that is possible, but not required. I would rather lose a little bit of power to eliminate the ping, but I haven't experienced it yet. If you would rather not take the chance, don't get your ECU reflashed, and take your chances with the DET.

Have a good one.
