quote:Sounds like you have an appropriate screen name . I will have to talk to the boss about this we get 5gallon jugs of tolulene all the time and use it in many of the same ways we do laquer thinner mostly cleaning of paint and contact cement equipment. If it isn't too expensive bought like that I could try loading a high octane program into my car with 87octane and try this. I know it would not be worthwhile over just buying premium but might be a fun experiment. I will have to try the stale gas treatment I used some "brew" and it now runs but maybe this could smooth it out.
Originally posted by wileyE: Used toulene to freshen up questionable fuel in high compression twostrokes. NOT to raise the octane, but to raise the vapor pressure of fuel that had gotten stale. Thanks to illicit drug manufacture the price and puchase of 5 gal jugs of it is cost prohibitve around here. AV gas from the local airport is a better deal.
