you guys are something else....can you feel a diffrence in your car when you run 187, or 189, versus 192...no you cannot tell a diffrence in power....why do you think it would matter in the atv....although there may be a slight diffrence, you cannot feel it, nor does it improve quarter mile times.....you guys can waste your money if you want....its your money.Originally posted by meanrhino@May 6 2004, 01:38 PM
Will it help by a large amount no
will it give u a small amount of power yes
aviation fuel should not be used maybe the make your old 84 atc 185 chase cattle a little faster
but like they said it has alot of adatives for cooling a lubrication
even if there is not a noticable difference in power it does allow for slightly lower engine temps
how about some info to back up the running worse and it wont help at all theories
Im sorry man, I didnt mean to sound hostile at all. Sometimes my words just come accross like that. I put more emphisis on getting my point accross then what I sound like.....so sorry, I dont ever mean to sound like a A hole, so whenever I do people please let me know, I will always say Im sorry, I know I do it sometimes. But its not on purpose.....Originally posted by meanrhino@May 6 2004, 06:02 PM
yer not backing it up
u dont gotta get hostile
that sounds like an openion to me thats all
No you dont feel a diff with it in your vehicle...... but you will see it in an engine tear down and see that your engine has been running cleaner and is working more efficient........ in a quad or bike you will not FEEL the diff either..... BUT put it on a dyno and you will SEE a diff..... the difference comes from the engine working easier to perform better...... no it is not a lot but the engine does like the BETTER gas.... not saying higher octane but BETTER gas...... if you are running a HIGH Compression piston you BETTER run that high octane.... 100+ ....... in the stock engines you can run up to 103 and be fine and it will run leaner and run with more power .... 1-2 hp...... i gained torque with the increase of my octane and kept the Hp reading steady with the change........ if you can afford it then go with a little better gas and a little higher octane and remember that if you go too high you will FRY you motor.... not a pretty sight........you guys are something else....can you feel a diffrence in your car when you run 187, or 189, versus 192...no you cannot tell a diffrence in power....why do you think it would matter in the atv....although there may be a slight diffrence, you cannot feel it, nor does it improve quarter mile times.....you guys can waste your money if you want....its your money.[/b]
