I am not a petrochemical engineer, nor do I repair outboard motors for a living. But my understanding (and firm belief) is that there is no benefit to running higher octane in engines of this type (with comparatively low compression ratio). I do have a friend who has owned a gas station for decades. He was the first to tell me this, because I used to run 93 octane in everything.I hate to ask - but is the consensus that octane higher than 87 is a good or bad thing for the Sailpro?

In other locations, you can't even get on the grounds of the airport without a good reason & proper ID.... Ultimately found Racing Gas at a Sunoco in Fort Lee. 100 Octane and $9.99 a gallon! ...
