Terry's Tips!

When I bought my boat (1999) the dealer said to use only 87 octane gas and not to bother with any of the higher octanes because I'd just be wasting money. Is this true? Will I see any performance increase by using a higher octane?

If your power package is a Mercruiser the later models were equipped with a knock sensor. This sensor detects pre-ignition and adjusts ignition timing to prevent engine knock. For the ignition module to advance the timing for the best performance it will advance the timing until it detects a knock and retard it just until it does not detect it. This process occurs a thousand times per minute. If you use a higher-octane fuel with anti-knock additives the ignition module will not detect any pre-ignition and think that the knock sensor is inoperative and retard the timing to a default setting to prevent engine damage and thereby possibly reducing performance.
