Hey James, is this company out by you? You should contact them and see about getting some free samples for the So Cal Desert guys to test out. You can ship it or bring it with you to T-Day..:thumb:
 
Unless you are mixing one quart of that stuff with a gallon of pump gas, I just don't see it doing what it claims. The easy way to get a bit more octane is to buy some xylene at a paint supply place and mix it 10% or 20% with pump gas. It's already in pump gas so it's compatible. It works because xylene is 117 octane. Toluene works as well, but it is 114 octane. It is a bit more dense so it richens up the mix slightly. It's not exactly cheap, but neither is race gas.

Mixed with premium a 10% mix will give about 94 octane and 20% will get you to about 97.

I'm not a fan of octane boosters of any kind. I use to run Race gas back in the day, but I had a pretty modified motor and raced in the hot summer months as well. I was just think of some advertising ploy by James and he could get some and let us try it out and give our feedback...see if we see a difference in using the product or not.

I think there's a big misconception that the higher the octane the more power you have. There's no need for it, unless your engine actually needs a higher octane because of higher compression or something.

If you're truly interested in doing a professional review of their product, I can check into it.
 
IDK. I've seen studies(look up octane boosters on youtube and a channel should be in the selections that tests 3, one of which i remember was NOS fuel octane booster) that showed that they actually lowered peek power and octane of the fuel itself.

IMO if you want more octane just go for race gas.
