Octane Rating - IJAA/IJNA Av Gas

Does anyone know what the octane rating was? Did IJA and IJN aircraft use the same stuff?

Thanks!!

Hey Snautzer!

I just got your message!

Okay, if I'm reading that correctly, IJAA/IJNA Av gas tested out at 92-octane?

If so, that's amazing.

Bronc!

I think it is the optimum fuel. If the japanese could make it in bulk is another question.
