That would be very interesting if it were true.
So we are to assume adding motor oil or maybe some diesel fuel to gasoline raises the octane?

So are we to assume from your rhetorical question, that you don't really have tests results showing minute oil amounts, lowers gas octane?

So you don't think it affects the octane number at all? Please explain, I'll try and comprehend.

And small amounts of oil do indeed lower octane numbers.
