Just to be clear... Higher Octane does not increase power, it just reduced the gasolines tendency to pre-ignite. In older cars you would hear knocking with lower octane fuel. In modern cars they pull timing which in theory would reduce power and eliminates the damage that knocking does. However, head and cylinder design has greatly reduced the need for anti-knocking agents, so I seriously doubt you would get noticeable difference.

Ethanol has even less energy than gasoline but has different knocking characteristics.. If you guys want a good chemical explanation, I can find one for you...

??? So, when I switched to e85 on my last car my power increased by a lot. Not saying you're wrong, I just have had a different experience.

Well seeing as you've already dyno'd my car stock, back when we did the dyno day for AMG SoCal Lounge let me know when you're available! I would love to come check this stuff out since I am always looking for some kind of product like this. I will get Thomas (MJ50) to do a video before an after if he's up for it lol!

Just give us a call at (310) 533-8900 if you want to be the person to try this. We have had many people say they are coming but they never show up.

The only thing we ask is that the car is modified, not stock. That should not be to hard to find considering the forum that we are on.

Excited to see how a bottle of magic sauce will put down more ponies than race fuel with a specific tune for it.

Ha! I'm not high enough to put any of that crap in my car. I'm just on holiday break and think it would be cool to meet more AMG people.

How many pulls were done? The AFR is much leaner on the later pulls after the car has adjusted a bit (advantage to the booster). Without changing fuel I have seen almost 20 whp gained from the first to the fourth pull.
