It's pretty much wishful thinking to think there are significant secrets like this out there.
This is the first post of yours--at least, that I've read--that makes sense. Bravo...I believe you are exactly right on every count.

Also, the term octane cannot be applied to diesel oil. The term associated with diesel is CETANE.

BTW, I bought a gallon of 60,000 octane at the grocery store earlier for 79 cents.

(Hint: distilled water has a very high resistance to preignition.)
