That Mistubishi should have no problem compensating for the lower octane fuel. Just don't step on it!

comment Switching to a higher octane
What model year is the car? If it is older than about 1990, then it might not compensate for the lower-octane fuel by retarding the spark. Thus, I personally would siphon the tank. Anything newer should be fine, just don't accelerate quickly or pull a trailer with the 92 in the tank.

Thanks, Bob. That questions specifically asks about hills, while this question specifically asks about everyday driving on level ground.

comment Downshifting an automatic
I had no idea that engine braking consumes more fuel in a fuel-injected engine. I had assumed that with the throttle closed the additional RPM would not be met with an increase in fuel delivery. Thanks. Also, I agree with every bit about drivetrain wear.
