Default Raising octane by 1 point...safely.

Here in OR we get 92 octane. It's definitely better than Cali-piss 91, but it's nothing to brag about. If I wanted to raise my octane by 1 or 2 points so I could safely run a 93 octane AP map, how might I go about it?

I dunno how much octane booster you'd need to use to add 1 degree of octane, but shouldn't be much. I do know that one bottle of booster in my tank is slightly noticable, so I think 1 bottle of booster should be enough, and two would be more than plenty.

PDXTUNING!

I personally buy 5 gallons at a time. So usually I run about 98 octane.

VERY VERY cheap to use this to make up...a....single...octane...point!

They say on the bottle. Course 1 point on a bottle is .1 octane, so you'd need a bottle that says it raises 15 gallons of gas 10 points. Some people use torco, some use tolulene, some use xylene(sp?). You could also just add some ethonal or methonal to your gas tank.... They say the mixing octane of meth and eth are something like 116 octane, so 14 gallons of 92 and 1 gallon of eth or meth should do ya fine. I mean, it would get ya about 93.6 octane, which might be ok. It might not though since the ap maps are tuned for petrol.........

peace

Thumbs up E85

Use E85, put 2-3gal in a tankfull of 92 and you will get 93+oct. you only have one Gas station that sells E85:

Bob's Automotive & Gas
Phone 503-788-0545
9694 SE 82nd Avenue
Portland, OR 97266

Business Hours 5:30am-11pm daily
Payment Methods Cash AmericanExpress Discover MasterCard VISA

This is by far the cheapest way to boost your octane.
