Abstract:

Octane requirement increase ORI was determined for sixty-two 1984 model cars and trucks operated on unleaded gasoline. The cars tested were not selected to represent the distribution of vehicles produced in the model year rather 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. Though the sample size is smaller than in previous years, it does not appear to have significantly affected the conclusions.
