I made the assumption that the specification of 29* in my 1978 manual was for European grade fuel available to the public in 1978. I have never had an issue with detonation and my engine is very healthy after 10 years of flogging the crap out of it.
Just follow what it sais in the manual and you will be good to go.
Yeah, I plan on 26 but I wanted to quote the manual exactly as written.
