xylene
Hi Ive been experimenting running xyelene a paint thinner used as an octane booster. It has an octane rating of 117. If you mix 1 gal of xyelene with 4 gal of 92 octane you get about 98 octane. So far my veh. pulls harder and I can run more boost with out any detonation. Ive used the LM1 Ive been getting A/F ratios from 11.8-12.2 is that a good. My Egts are stable about 1500 at redline. Any one doing this type of experimenting.

Hi,

Take care of the rubber in the fuel lines though. Like toluene it might disolve rubber, which is not a good thing on a fuel line.
Toluene was BTW the major ingredient in the 'rocket-fuels' for 80's era turbo F1 cars. They got 1500 hp out of 1500cc engines with 80-90 pounds of boost.


Regards,
Klaus

Hi,

Here's a link that shows the Xylene and Toluene content of pump gas and race gas:

http://www.wauknet.com/douthitt/gas.htm

Be aware, that the info regarding AVGAS in that link is wrong. AVGAS has a HIGHER vapor pressure, so it's less susceptible to vapor lock, not more.

Regards,
Klaus
