Hey guys,

i know this might seem like a dumb question but i was curious if those little bottles of octane boost work or not. I think the cause blockage in the fuel injectors (over time) but i was just curious......

anyone have any info to share!

i've used it many times.. in multiple cars and i have always noticed a gain in power. i don't have any stats on it.. and i don't know if it hurts the engine at all, but i heard that if you use it too frequently it could do damage..but that was just a rumor.

I used to pour a bottle in my old 85 Corolla GTS (AE86) prior to each autocross event. I didn't notice any negatives from using the product(s).

I tried the 104+ with Chevron Premium. My IS didn't seem to like it much. The car just bogged. It returned to normal after the next refuel. Weird.

I used the NOS off-road formula in my VW when I took it to the 1/4 mile track. Seems to work, I guess. No negative effect at all
