    Octane boost??

    Anyone ever use an Octane boost in your gas. I have noticed some marina's don't have gas with an octane over 87.

    Well octane boost won't help you there (unless you put in can after can!)
    Octane boost you buy at auto stores only raise the octane 0.5 points at the most. So if you by 87 octane and add a can of boost you get a whooping 87.5 octane! (A point on octane boost terms is 0.1 octane increase)
    So it won't help.

    well Splish-splash might be right but I ran into the same problem and used the 105 octane plus stuff. Good for twenty gallons and you put it in 15 gallons. All I am going to say is that it is not good to use all the time but on certain occasions it did help me. I have a 03 GTXLTD

    Watch for rpm loss.

    Morosso used to make a ocrane booster that worked. The stuff that is currently available and meets all the EPA regulations is not worth the cost of the can it comes in !!

    I fill up on Regular some times because it is the only thing available.
    I never have had a problem.
