    Octane questions?

    What is the maximum octane you would recommend running in a slightly modified p-x. Or what octane has been the best to run?

    Octane

    The highest octane I believe you should run is 93/94. Race gas or higher octane gas will not help and I think it would actually run worse...

    These ski's are built for premium, nothing more..

    Thank you on my lake all you can get on the water is 87 octane so i ordered a case of amsoil boost to keep a bottle with me all the time. The Amsoil says a 7 point increase in octane there's no way that is true!!!

    You are absolutely right. Octane boost is pretty much a joke. You should be ok running 87 though if it were me, I would just fill her before going out and keep an extra tank in the truck for refills...

    I does raise it 7 points, I mean point 7. Adding the octane boost as recommended will raise 87 octane to 87.7 octane.
