The spontaneous combustion will not only cause engine cylinder in local temperature is too high, can not let fuel to participate in the work of the engine, resulting in power output in serious decline, resonance between the piston and cylinder wall, because of abnormal vibration caused by explosion is called "knock".
Engine knock is actually the most important reason is that gasoline grade is too low, we often say that the number 92, number 95 refers to the grade of gasoline, Gasoline label is neither refers to the purity, nor does it imply a lot of people often say that the so-called octane number, but gasoline anti-knock index, also known as anti-knock index.
