I'm not questioning top tier gas... I only use Shell V-power myself although even that is debate-able... But top tier is only thought to keep valves/engines cleaner... I don't think anyone has claimed top tier fuel has made more power than the others. So you have the wrong argument there.

Edit: just watched your full youtube video... still inconclusive... ranges are within standard testing deviation.

I'd have to agree, since this is a logical approach. Some seem to think 100 octane + = magic....
