yes, but have you ever ran toluene mixed at 30% with race gas (100 oct.) in a higher performance engine? it makes a noticeable difference. you are right though, for most of the people in this forum i would strongly recommend not getting into it.MR1 said:stay FAR FAR away from Toluene
the pains at which i went to try that on my track vehicle far outweighed the benefits.idrivemyself said:yes, but have you ever ran toluene mixed at 30% with race gas (100 oct.) in a higher performance engine? it makes a noticeable difference. you are right though, for most of the people in this forum i would strongly recommend not getting into it.

You can find higher octane in Cali. Go where you see all the Lambos and Farraris.trd619 said:upping the octane is useful if your F/I especially in cali where only 91 octane is availble. many tacoma's on customtacos.com with the toyota supercharger use it and it works very well for them at the track....
Ethanol is extremely bad for your engine... the way i do it to run at 100RON (what my car needs), is i either buy the bottles of Wynns Octane boost, or if i feel i got enough cash, i buy a 44 gallon Drum of AvGas and mix 5L (first) with 40L (fills the rest of the Tank), and the engine runs smooth as.Formula #4 - Methanol or Ethanol
Cost...........$0.60 - $1.75/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...........94.3 Octane (Methanol)
10%...........94.7 Octane (Ethanol)
Notes: Methanol is wood alcohol. Ethanol is grain alcohol and found in Gasohol in 10% ratios. Both alcohols are mildly corrosive and will eat gas tank linings, rubber and aluminum if used in excessive ratios. Main ingredient in "Gas Dryers", combine with water.
Dyno with 91 octane one week and dyno with 106 octane another week to show us.sonyminidiscman said:Higher octane gas DOES help. I have seen it, experience it my self. No matter what other says, I know it gives me extra horsepower enough to make me notice it.
