note 1
European gasoline is rated by the Research Octane Number (RON). American gas stations use an average of the RON and the Motor Octane Number (MON). These two methods use the same tests, but under very different conditions. For example, the RON is measured at 600 RPM and at 135 degrees inlet temperature; whereas the MON is measured at a much more realistic 900 RPM and 318 degrees. RON always yields the highest number; MON always yields the lowest number. The number you see on the pump at an American gas station is an average of the two, called Pump Octance Number (PON).

This is why BMW's R1200CL Technical Training Handbook prescribes: "Unleaded regular grade fuel, 95 RON".
