How do you figure 87 octane makes more HP? Chemically impossible. I would be carefull running that, right on the tank there is a label warning anything under 90 octane can damage the engine. If 92 is good enough then I will stick with that (only about 60 cents more a tank than 87 octane). I was just thinking the racing fuel would produce a little more oomph.quote:
The newer models that say Kleen on them have some sort of catalytic converter in the exhaust I think. But why would you want to run such an exotic mixture when regular ole 87 will actually produce more hp.
Listen to this guy and you will win races.quote:
The lower the octane the faster burning the fuel. So to get maximum power use the lowest octane fuel that does not cause pre-ignition.
