Default Low and behold

I've had my bonnie for not quite a year yet, and just now figured out the reason it has no kick with 87 octane (and no knock, either). It has a knock sensor that can adjust the timing, keeping the engine from running itself into the ground. Sort of a neat, and very practical (in this case) safety feature
