OCTANE REQUIREMENT INCREASE OF 1984 MODEL VEHICLES

The results are presented of a study in which octane requirement increase (ORI) was determined for 62 1984 model cars and trucks operated on unleaded gasoline. The data base consists of information volunteered by participants. All ORI values were determined from the increase in maximum octane requirements irrespective of whether requirements were obtained at full- or part-throttle. At 15,000 miles, the mean ORI for all vehicles with full-boiling range unleaded (FBRU) fuels was 4.0 Research octane numbers, 2.6 Motor octane numbers, and 3.3 (R plus M)/2 numbers. These and other findings are discussed.
