Hi - I use my car for street use only and infrequently. As such, I try to use ethanol free gasoline but can't find any over 91 Octane. While I realize it's adequate for my purposes, I would like to run at lease 93 Octance as I tried Sunoco 93 (with 10% ethanol) and car was definitely more responsive. Does anyone have any recommendations on a high grade racing fuel additive/concerntrate I can safely use to increase the Octance some that will not damage O2 sensors, catalytic converters, etc.? Thank you!

Torco Accelerator works well.

Obviously you are from the east, as am I. I drove out west of the Mississippi last year and all I could find is 91 or less. This worked well and at higher elevations, 6k ft to 8k I was getting 26 - 28 mpg in 4th around 4000 rpm. If you want better response drive in a lower gear, RE: 3rd or 4th. You have to keep the RPM around 3000 - 4000 and the temp up. The 5.2 FPC is made to run around 200deg +. 1200 rpm and 180 F does more damage than good.

Spoke with Brian. Seems like a good guy. How long have you been using Aces IV and have you tried their oil? Thanks
