So is everyone good with running 87 octane fuel or are you going for better grade ? If so how much higher and what are the benifits ,,, thanks
When you use 87, expansion occurs when the piston is farther along in its downstroke and thus there's more room in the cylinder head. This reduces peak cylinder pressure, eliminating knock but also giving you less power and poorer mileage.
Higher octane gas makes ANY engine runner cooler. That why ppl who boost (turbo) cars use meth injection cools down the detonation temp. = more power son!Poor mileage is right I ran one tank of 87 and it didn't last no time I can run the 93/104 mix and it last a good while. that and my engine seems to run a bit cooler.
