I often wonder what octane you really get using auto fuel. Most folks buy 87 octane for their cars and then I step up and select 93E10. I bet the delivery pump and hose need to purge into my empty 5 gallon can until pure 93 octane starts to flow. I don't think I end up with 93 octane...

I put one gallon into my vehicle to purge the line before filling cans for the airplane.
