    What kind of aston was that EVO?

    Yes, I love the db9, only its wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy TOO expensive to even compare it to a corvette.

    The db9 is one of the nicest cars on the road today. You know, Aston Martin is owned by Americans now.

    Too bad you can't drive it in most parts of the country. 95 octane and all.

    Do you not have 95 octane fuel? 95 is standard in the UK, and we also have the option of 98 octane fuel but thats about 5 pence per litre more expensive.

    Aston martin might be owned by the americans but they are still all built in england. Just a pitty that the designer is german! would have prefered an american, i think.

    Nah, Germans and Italians have the best looking cars.

    My God! I wouldnt give 87 to my Dog let alone my car. I thought you american loved your cars?

    For the most part. Here in NM those are all lower. 86, 88, 91.

    I have never seen 95 octane fuel (that i noticed), even in Los Angeles. Though I'm sure a few places must have it.

    This might explain part of why europe's gas prices are higher. Interesting to know.

    On the contrary, we love the independence our cars give. Not the cars themselves.

    I'm not certain which one it was. I should also mention this was in Nice, France. My aunt was very nice about it. :redface:

    There are two different ways of measuring the anti-knock capability of a fuel: motor octane number (MON) and research octane number (RON). Europe uses RON. America averages the two. MON is usually about 8-10 points less than RON, so there isn't that much of a difference in what you're getting.

    Ah. So the listed rating on the ason isn't the same scale as the pumps here. Interesting.

    Right. If you look at US sites, the DB9 is listed as requiring 91 octane. I don't know if it's identical to the European version, though. A lot of cars are modified a bit to deal with our fuel.
