Possibly but fyi most jet fuels are mostly like diesel, i.e. they have a much LOWER octane rating. Avgas is the exception

Why would you not crack octane industrially?

Octane is very useful the way it comes, and the lower alkanes you could crack octane into are plentiful. Cracking is a good technique for converting bitumen into an alkane that fuel can be made from, but you can make fuel (specifically gasoline) from octane.


What is the correct octane rating for 9.8 to 1 compression ratio?

It really depends on the motor, heads(iron/aluminum), cam. For example an older iron head 350 with a small cam with 9.8:1CR will need 93 maybe even octane booster. While a small bore aluminum head engine could run 89 maybe even 87 depending on cam size.

Is Gumout octane booster worthwhile?

i have a 2001 GTp.. I alsw have a Ls1m scanner http://ls1m.com/ .. It scanns my car for everthing .. Most cases i scan for Kr.. with my car i sually get a 2.95 kr full boost 8 psi. but yest my car was on E so i decided to buy one octane booster at wlmart. and ad it to some 16 gallons of gas drove easy for 10 miles. then started to scan.. Now i see a .95 at full boost..Yes it works...AnswerI have used Gumout Octane Booster for about 6 months now. I drive an '89 Ford Ranger. Before the booster, it would knock and ping at the bottom of lower gears. It would stall whenever it felt like it. About 10 miles into the first tank of booster, I noticed a dramatic improvement. Hesitation is lower, no more stalling and idle is smooth. No more knocks and pings. It costs me under $2 per bottle. I use 1 for every tank of gas and I went from 17 to 24 MPG. That is not an exaggeration. I tally the MPG at EVERY fill-up. AnswerYes, they work to an extent. But, let it be known, if you are looking for a "magic bullet" to fix knocks and pings, I would look elsewhere. You could have a more serious problem somewhere within your engine causing the knock. If an Octane Booster "solves" your problem (knock/pinging) - then definitely take your car to a decent mechanic for further diagnosis. Also, consider, a growing number of vehicles on the road today actually "require" or "recommend" higher octane fuels. Check your vehicle's owner manual. It may be possible you've been using "Regular" unleaded, but you should actually be used "Mid Grade" or Supreme gasoline. So yea, if this is the case (your car requires Mid Grade gasoline, but you've been using only regular) - that could be the source of the knock and ping you experience.Gumout Octane Booster contains mostly JP5, which is used in the US Navy as fuel for aircraft, and really cleans fuel systems well. The improvement you felt was most likely a cleaner fuel system as well as cleaner injectors.


Your car is sputtering when hit the brakes and it sometimes even cuts off what could that be?
