Default Figured out my KR problems (GTP)

I've been having noticable KR at WOT throttle for about the last month and couldn't figure out where it was coming from.

The other night I had been drinking, so my gf was driving. We were running low on gas, and then I saw her do it, she put in 87

So now all of the KR is gone, and my gf learned about 93 octane

The two teen age girls in the car didn't permit for that, nor did the big ring on the finger. Tossed a BC card her way though
