    I found these same formulas on different sites. I haven't tried it and don't really plan on it unless I have a shit load of people confirm it, but i wanna know if any of you have heard of using this stuff and if you would recommend it in small ammounts.

    Editor's note: I would NOT suggest that a person use the following fuel mixtures without considering the detrimental effects on your engine, vital engine components (O2 sensor, etc), and other potential damage. That said, the information is interesting.

    Everything has a warning. It all depends on how much you use. So back to someone with real knowledge about this...

    Most of what they list on there is what is already used in gasoline at the pumps... MTBE, ethanol... all fuel additives which increase the octane rating of fuel. I say give it a try.. it's the same shit the gas companies use.

    some of that MIGHT be good for very high compression motors only.
