Here, the highest octane sold is 92. However, in Vancouver, B.C., some Chevron stations sell 94 octane. It's much more expensive. In Seattle, 92 costs about $4.00 and 94 in Vancouver cost over $5.50.

How many of you would pay $1.50 more and why?

I would not because the extra octane would just make me feel better, not make the car go any faster. I have noticed that 92 makes me get better gas mileage but the difference is not enough to cover the increased cost of premium.

No. Higher octane than what my car needs or wants doesn't mean the car will go any faster, run any better or get any better mileage so, why would I spend the extra money for higher octane?

No, because my car has no need for that higher octane so it'd just be a waste of money.

No, because I have nothing that uses it, and in reality you probably don't either.
