i've put chevron with techron gas ever since i bought the car, never have i put below 93 octane. And how did it happen I have no clue, the car had been running fine all day, I was leaving my neighborhood, a truck was tailgating me so i floored it, lift didnt kick in, i got to about 40 mph, and i started hearing the knocking sound, so i just pulled over.

Well, if I were you, I would hope for the best and hope that it is just a bad tank of gas. I've heard of people having knock, putting new gas in, and finding out that it was just the gas, even if they did fill up with what was supposed to be 93 octane.

Damn..

I gotta start babying the engine now. That bites. But it gives a good excuse on building to motor up!

what exactly is? knock?
There are different "knocks" in the engine. The most common one is when you use gas that has been diluted with water to cut down on prices. That one gives out a "knocking" sound when you turn off the engine.

Another "knock" sound is what happened to Oscar, is when a bearing goes out due to wear and tear. The "knocking" sound is much greater than the one that comes from using cheap gas.

There are couple of others, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.
