I always love getting into this one!!!!
#1. Lower Octane (87) is what should normally be used for most machines such as your touring, low performance sleds.
#2 Higher Octane (91+) is what should be used on the higher end wanna-be race sleds. These are ones that have the H.O. engines in them, slightly higer compression, different timing curves, etc.
Stay away from any gas that contains any types of alcohols, unless it is Isopropyl as it will actually 'lean' your mixture out. Most companies, (Sunoco) use up to 10% grain alcohols in their Ultra 94 gas.
The higher the octane, it will RESIST detonation. Lowere octane detonates earlier and actually will run like a deisel with higher comp. engines.
If want more info....just PM me or post here!!!!!!
I like working with Electricity............It ALWAYS tells you when you are wrong.
