Interesting pump labeling - Angeli's in Marinette, WI

Recommended Posts

That actually may be correct.. a minimum of 94 Octane (at winter blend  70% ethanol)

 

 

Did you talk to them ?

E-30 is around 91-92, so E70 is probably around 97-98. I have been meaning to call the owner... haven't gotten around to it. Notice something wrong with another sticker?

E50-E85 w/ 87 AKI BoB is right about 94.4-94.6 AKI. So that would be about right if it was 85 AKI Blend Stock. Pure Ethanol is 113 AKI but E85 mixed with 87 AKI does not make 105 AKI. The correct way is to test it when both fuels are mixed together.

When you buy a new Gilbarco fuel pump-94 octane is the highest octane sticker provided-pretty sure that is why they have it on rather than the more likely 100 octane for winter. It is normally not standard practice to post octane on E85. The 85% sticker they also used is also  not used today since while it was the original version - it was dropped due to the 70% being correct for winter. That was something I argued for years ago because 1) people were adding more gas when filling their cars believing they  needed to and 2) racers needed to know it could be less than 85%.
