I am confuse.

NOS booster contains MMT and the manual recommend not to use it. Otherwise it may not be covered by Subaru warranty.

I am missing something?

I went to two autoparts stores (R&S Strauss & Pepboys). Most of the octane booster contains MMT. I get all the octane booster brand that doesn't mention MMT on its label. However, how I can be sure that these products effectively does not contain MMT.

Any additional input is greatly appreciated.

If your super is 91 than I would worry about it. Yes you can stay out of boost till your are empty and refill but even with straight 91 the 2.5L engine is known to knock. If I were you I would put some race gas or NOS octane bbooster in there RIGHT now. For a full tank go with at least 2 bottles of NOS booster if using race gas do 1 gallon now and when it drains another gallon driving around put 1 more in.

For a good site to calculate your octane mix go to:
