    Yes and sorry I did not post about it.

    I mixed 5 Gallons of 92 Octane with 32oz of Torco. Torco claim that 14 octane numbers should increase, supposedly to 106.
    On our lab the Octane (RON+MON)/2 came out to be 101.6. So yes there is an increase in power, not as advertised, but good enough

    so from 92 to 101.6, an increase of 9.6. Thats not bad

    so if you have 10 gallons of 93 octane in your tank, and you mix 64oz of Torco, you will get 102.6. based on my analysis

    glad to be of help guys. One thing I also thought was impressive was that the 92 octane fuel had an RVP (reid vapor pressure) of 7.0. When Torco was added, it came down to 6.4. This is really good. Oxygen content remained the same as well

    Thanks Jacob. Can you tell me what the benefit of a lower RVP is?

    Thanks,

    Lower RVP = greater power per measure or MORE JUICE for your buck, lower RVP = more volatility

    Lower RVP also pumps more easily, think of it as lower density stuff flowing down a pipe

    I used to run Torco in a super charged Dodge Dakota as a safety when I couldn't get race gas, it seemed to do help, though I could never quantify the result. I will say the plugs had a brown residue on them, not fouled just discolored a bit. Great test info on this thread.

    I ran this in every tank in a 600 hp s50 e36 turbo. Never had a issue. Would turn the plugs a slight orange though. Logs all looked clean.
