Octane was definitely a thing in the 1950s.

In 1956 Sun Oil opened its first custom-blending pump in Orlando, Florida; from five grades of gasoline, customers could select the one that best met their car's octane needs and the pump would mix it then and there.
The blend could be chosen from 100% regular to 100% premium; no new news there, but it could also dispense 75-25, 50-50 and 25-75 regular/premium.
