Is there any significant difference in gasoline brands?  Are there any
recommendations for one brand or another?

    Detergency is good, because a build-up in the carb/injector(s) WILL mean a
    build-up of deposits on the intake valves and pistons.  As these deposits
    increase, the airflow into the cylinder grows less, affecting power.  The
    chamber itself grows smaller and means the possibility of detonation.  If your
    car automaticly retards the spark to prevent detonation, power loss is seen
