I run Chevron 100LL Aviation fuel for street and mild boost 14psi

For our road trips, I run Chevron 94 Octane, doctored with a deadly mix of chemical to boost the octane to 100

I run C-16 for sustained boost applications, under race conditions, 16PSI.

I also spray some methanol into the inlet of the turbo.

10:1 compression and boost.

Avgas is made to very high standards, so it does not make a difference if it is Shell or Chevron. Most of our gas stops are at Chevron, so that is what we tend to fill up on with the 94.

C-16 seems to work very well in our turbo applications..

I run Mowhawk Regular 90 in my Toyota GTS, as I get the added octane for the same price as 87 regular, and it seems to work just fine.

Chevron 91 FJ20 (2.1) 10.5:1. I would run 94 if we had it.

91 octane shell,chevron or 76. pretty much any 91 octane runs ok. if my compression was lower I would usa 89 or 87. buy since comp ratio is high I would not even mind using 93 octane if available
