"Let me observe that petrol octane rating in the US differs from UK, Europe and elsewhere. They use the so-called anti-knock index (AKI), which is the arithmetic mean of RON (Research Octane Number) and MON (Motor Octane Number), hence the lower figures you correctly mentioned in your article. Actually their 87 AKI is your [Europe's] 91-octane RON, 89 AKI corresponds to 95 RON and 93 AKI, to 98 RON. As a matter of fact Brazil follows the US on this, for we used to export petrol to them some decades ago due to our first ethanol programme."
