THE petrol price is at an all-time high and con­sumers are cash-strapped. You’d there­fore as­sume most mo­torists are fore­go­ing 95-oc­tane un­leaded fuel in favour of 25-cent-a-litre-cheaper 93.

In this fea­ture, we ex­plain what the oc­tane grade means; what im­pact it has on your car at the al­ti­tude where you live; and, ul­ti­mately, which one is best for your car and wal­let.
