[DML] Re: car pings when accelerating



A higher octane fuel may indeed eliminate the ping, but that's 
treating the symptom and not the cause.

Double check your timing to make sure it's not set more than 15 
degrees. A need for a general tune up also can cause this. Hopefully 
the experts will chime in with more in-depth info.
