What this means, Robert, is that the overhaul on your engine has resulted in
an increase in compression ratio - probably because you fitted oversize (or
less dished) pistons and had the head surfaced as part of the valve job.
But fear not - 150 is roughly equivalent to 8.8 to 1 so you will still be
able to run very nicely on 92 octane premium and you will notice an
improvement in performance.
