Review of Accord in USA Today

There's a little tidbit that says the V-6 is engineered for an extra 10hp and 10 lb-ft of torque when using premium gas ("The Accord V-6 ratings assume regular-grade fuel, and Honda will market it as a regular-fuel engine. But ? pssst ? it's good for another 10 hp and 10-plus lbs.-ft. on premium, acknowledges V-6 engineer Asaki").
