I have other, what I call, minor work to be done on the car to make it safer, and smoother, but I do need a radio that does not plug into my ears. Thanks.
Try the Audio forum. Skylaw is the man for this kind of stuff.

How can you have 8 pages of redicolus discussion about octane and not a single mention of compression ratio. My 1980 450slc iron block has a 8.5 to 1 compression ratio and premium would be a pure waste of money.

In my 2003 Maxima I get about 5mpg better on the highway with premium than I do with regular. Even with regular in my Maxima I have never had any knocking problems.

1980 450slc converted to MegaSquirt electronic fuel injection and couldn't be happier!
