The History of the Gas Station
The increase in automobile usage after Henry Ford started to sell motor vehicles that the middle class could afford prompted an increase in the demand for gas. The world’s first gas station that was specifically constructed for the sale of gasoline was built in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1905 at 420 South Theresa Avenue. Prior to the use of the term gas stations their were know to motorists as filling stations.
The First Drive-in filling station, which was named Gulf Refining Company was opened to the motorists in Pittsburgh on December 1, 1913. Prior to this, automobile drivers would pull into almost any general or hardware store in order to fill up their tanks.
Many car manufactures now recommend or require the use of high octane for use in many of their vehicles. Octane levels are a measurement of fuel stability. The higher the octane the more stable the fuel. Fuel with a higher octane rating can stand up to higher compression before it detonates.
Infrequent detonation will not harm your engine performance but frequent detonation will likely harm your vehicle and hasten the decline of the engine performance.
Vehicles that have engines with high compression ratios often will require the use of high octane found in premium gas for best performance. However, the majority of modern cars today are built to run on regular gas.
