    ^Yep. Higher octane gas does nothing for a stock motor, and can actually be worse for it in the long run, no to mention harder on your wallet.:D

    Yeah it will leak some when you take it out, just put a rag in the hole and check your oil agian when you put it all back together. Its just the oil laying in the top of the head, I would say you wont lose more than half of a quart, but still check and add if need be when its back together.
