I'm wondering what you all use for "GOOD" octane booster if the octane is to low at the pump or if you suspect poor quality fuel? What's the best bang for the buck?
Thanks in advance :beerchug:

They plain flat out don,t do squat. At best they will remove moisture & stabilize fuel but that is it! A hole bottle in 5 gallons of fuel will raise octane from 87 way up to a whopping 87.1! Do a search on octane boosters on this forum..it has been discussed to death!

the best way to use octain booster is to not, mix some race gas in 1:1 or 2:1 to get the octqain you need. they have tanks that go on the back of most sled models so it'd be easy to mix at the pump if your on a long outing.

That works for me! :beerchug: We have 110 octane across the bay from us. Perhaps I should stock up now prior to the huricane hitting and jacking up the prices :augen41:

50/50 sould give you 98.5.......

Torco Racing Fuels is the first and only race fuel manufacturer to produce a real race fuel concentrate that performs like a race fuel. This product is not an octane boost; it is a race fuel concentrate that transforms to produce higher octane fuels when proper mixing instructions are followed. Torco Race Fuel Accelerator is available in both leaded and unleaded. Both leaded and leaded accelerator is available to order individually by the 32oz bottle, by the case, or 5 gallon pails.

Blend the Leaded concentrate with 100 low lead aviation fuels to get up to 112-octane race fuel that really flies!!!! This concentrate when blended with a race fuel makes a Nitrous fuel to fit many applications. The Leaded concentrate makes up to a 106-octane race fuel when blended properly. Plus giving the needed lubricity of LEAD!!!



This is not a kerosene this is a true nitro addtive. The only way to fly.

DonoBBD........Do you happen to know the mixing ratio that Torco recommends to achieve 93/94 octane from a poor grade of 87 octane unleaded pump fuel? In Wisconsin I fear we are going to see most of our gas contain ethanol this winter. I'm just trying to get a heads up on this octane thing. Thanks in advance :beerchug:

Bluebear, you hit the nail square on the head touluine or xyline (sp) are great for bumping octane we in the turbo import scene use this all the time

Toluene, Xylene, and Benzene are nere the same products. Found in paint thinner. Most paint thinner is pure Toluene. :div20: Benzene, toluene and xylene are relatively common chemicals in industry and even in nature. They are volatile, meaning that they vaporize to gases easily. As liquids, they are solvents (chemicals that can dissolve other chemicals) and therefore make good bases for glues, lacquers, dyes and cleaners. These guys realy realy like to blend well with fuel stock.

Benzene is the heavyest and best for octane boosting. Then Toluene and xylene last because it is the lightest. It will take more xylene to bring octane up than benzene.
