In 1975-1976, a cooperative study was conducted to determine the difference beween octane requirements measured by raters using the CRC technique, and those reported by customers in unprompted response to a questionnaire. A few customers appeared to be more sensitive to known than were the raters and 14% of the customers did not object to known when operating on the lowest octane quality gasoline (80.6 RON) in the program.
