Default AP Stage2 93 octane map and Husky 94 gas...

Good idea, yes or no? I read that the Husky/Mowhawk 94 really isn't a true 94 and runs a little hot... so would it be safe to run the 93 AP maps using Husky 94 fuel? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Cheers, JC

I use the 91 personally. For the sake of 5 crank hp and no more torque I don't risk it.

In addition there's the belief that the higher Octance burns a little hotter than American 93 Oct. I'd suggest sticking to 91 Oct and the 91 Oct map.

I have a cat back exhaust for now, and running 94 from husky. Should I just run 91 now and after I get the downpipe and accesspoprt. could running 91 oct mess the engine up or is it safe.

I used to run the Husky 94 but it's so expensive and it gives you less gas mileage. Best bang for the buck is the Centex Premium as it is a 92 Octane. It's also alot cheaper than most gas stations (especially on Wednesdays Saturdays and Sundays I believe). I saw the delivery slip for the gas and it is Esso 92 octane. Reason for the higher octane I was told is that there isn't as much detergent in the gasoline. Ohh well, so I change my fuel filter more often and run more injector cleaner...

Nope, Esso has 91 becuase of all the additives. Centex has (Esso) Imperial Oil supplied gasoline that is 92. I've even tried running the 92 Centex gas with the 93 Cobb map and I see no pulled timing or detonation. Weird..

I stick to husky 94. better safe than sorry. besides, the difference per tank between 91 (from any other station) and 94 is $1 per tank. (yes, I know you get ****tier mileage and thus it costs more, but you can't have as much fun... hehe)

My STi pings in warm weather on Husky 92 or any other 91. No pinging on Husky 94.

Me thinks running without pinging is better than pinging.

Just thinking out loud.

that is true. Det happens on anything other than 94. If you are running a highly tuned car then you can't tell the car is detonating or is the car is tuned for 91.

Stock STi with Factory reflash to help with the pinging issue(s).

And Yes, it still pings on anything other than Husky 94.

yeah, but the reflash is just the ECU retarding the timing when it encounters det. Retard timing = car with special needs = less powa
