To explain to USAers: we have RON+MON/2 here. They don't, and their higher nominal ratings are due principally to a difference in calculation.
That said, their gasoline is still superior to ours--they generally have a much better additives package.

Why might that be?

As a general rule of thumb, RON-4 =~ AKI.
