The most I've ever seen here in Texas is 94. Every station around here as at least 93 though...poor Californians.

a few higher octane will do something!
keep you from pinging when turbo especially at higher boost without race gas.

I highly doubt it will make a noticeable difference. I tried it, and it seemed like a waste of money. However, I went up to Pep Boys when I decided to try it, and the woman said these things have been selling like crazy. Those damn ricers must think it will give them 50hp if they use the Nawwwssss octane booster! :-?

buddy of mine said it will clogg the injectors and mess with the o2 sensor, he said that the only one that works is the NOS octance boosters.
what does he mean??? octance boosters will clog your injectors??? i don't think so...as for the o2 sensor...i know running leaded gas will do that over a long period of use...but never heard that running higher octane will...ask him where he's getting this info from...
