And I would almost bet money that you don't need a higher octane. Unless you are driving a real high compression engine, then you don't need any higher octane than is currently dispensed.

Regular. I can't imagine ever owning a vehicle requiring high-test in light of the huge price differences.

What is the major benefit for using higher octane except when we are forced to use.
