I'll start this conversation by saying that Octane is not directly related to the number seen on the gas pump.

For the following questions the certain assumptions must hold true.
1. We're talking only about our C14 engine. 2. Pump gas only. 

What effect does Octane have when mixed into "Gasoline"? What is the difference between RON and MON in relation to Octane?

What makes more power, 87 octane gas or 91 octane gas?  How is this effected by VVT?
