And if so, what a boon to the performance segment! If and only if, 'Big Oil' prices the product move correctly (the $.05/gallon noted), otherwise the IC run may be over.
The move makes sense with the trend going to lower displacement turbo motors. Higher octane means greater potential for tuning, ergo more horsepower and more efficiency.
