Octane Ratings and the 4 Stroke Engine Cycle - EricTheCarGuy
I know it has been a while but better late than never. I recently had a
conversation with someone who wanted to know why octane ratings were
important and what they meant, I thought this would make a perfect video
for ETCG and here we are. So in this video we go over the 4 parts of the 4
stroke cycle in a gasoline engine and how it is effected by octane. I like
this video because it is a window into the direction I see these videos
going in the future, more dynamic and more thought out. I hope you enjoy
it and find it informative.
Special thanks to Ford Motor Company for the use of their animation in this
video. I did add some stuff of my own by the way, thanks guys.

Fifth Gear's Jason Plato services Volkswizard's VW Corrado VR6 to see if can produce more power
In March 2013 we supplied Fifth Gear with a Corrado VR6 to see if following
a full service and some injector cleaner, whether it would produce more
power. The car was rolling road tested at our premises to get a base
reading after which some Redex injector cleaner was added to a full tank of
fuel. After this tank was used, the car was taken to Millbrook Proving
Ground where it was rolling road tested again and after each service item
was changed. Eventually the car nearly produced the full 190 bhp - what
the footage didn't state was that the car was run on 95 RON unleaded rather
than Super Unleaded which the car requires to produce full power - this was
done to avoid clouding the effectiveness of the Redex injector treatment as
Super Unleaded fuel contains similar cleaning properties.
