With the drastic differences in pricing between premium and regular gasoline, what is the difference between these two grades? 

The octane rating is the first noticeable difference between these two fuel grades.  So what really is octane and how does it make a difference?  Essentially, it is the percentage of isooctane, the stable chemical which is the basis of gasoline, and heptane, a gas with high detonation properties.  The isooctane of the mixture provides less of a “knock” within the engine when it is at a higher level.  So in regards to the octane rating, a 93 octane has 93% isooctane and 7% heptane.  This does not account for the additives that the fuel companies include in the final product, only the anti-knock properties of that mixture. When you see gasoline for sale with more than 100 octane rating, they utilize a chemical base with more stable anti-knock capabilities than that of pure isooctane. Read more
