I do know that in the USA the octane number is calculated as RON+MON/2 while in Europe is just RON.
That means roughly that 91octane in the USA is the same as 95octane in Europe.
In general the European equivalent is adding 4 to the American value.
Australia and Canada:What octane calculations standards apply in your countries?
I know I could google for the answers but then I would lose one post and you shall stay in your lazy hibernation.
I'm always looking after you.

Pretty odd that there are no universal specs in the gasoline-octane content calculations although such specifications exist for diesel and all sorts of marine fuels.
So, from what I understand Canada, USA and Colombia use the same octane evaluation system,
while Australia uses Europe's.
As for the price, in Europe it varies from $6.30 to $7.20 per USgallon!!! :cuss: :cuss: :wall:
