Ever wonder what you are paying for at the pump? Farmer and machinery journalist Ray Bohacz explains how octane and cetane are important to every engine and why they are different.

*Ray is farmer in New Jersey, USA. He has turned his love and knowledge of farm machinery into a career in itself and contributes to multiple machinery publications. He says:

I want your yield bump and business savvy reinvested to bring more value the next harvest season and not consumed by your equipment. For this reason, I have created the Farm Machinery Digest website and Idle Chatter podcast. It is a means for me to transfer knowledge to you about all aspects of the equipment that is employed in modern production agriculture.
