I had been looking so i can test gas myself just to make sure i dont get some random low octane
I purchased one of these and i will let you know how it goes
i was going to take it to a proper gas testing lab i have used before and see how it stacks up
looks easy to use on there youtube clips
only thing i see they do is swap from container to container without cleaning out , but it does seem to change as they go
i cant understand them but it looks like they get ripped off a lot in russia, and get pretty exited when it reaches number advertised
i know that when octane level is advertised in Australia it is a minimum octane.
I had 3 major companys fuel tested and they all went over by 0.5
ours is measured in RON and
I tested your US gas 93 that was still in my boat when it got here to OZ and it comes up to our 98
I also tried 3 point lower octane cos thats all i could, get then added Lucas octane booster as per instructions, well what BS that stuff is, melted intercoolers within 5mins - so im not playing for a few weeks now.
If i blame the octane booster then they will blame the gas i mixed it with, so PHTT ! lesson learned, if i cant get high octane i dont go there or i row home.
Trying to make someone acountable is just BS
This is what got me searching again for testers and i came across this one http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/PORTABLE-...AAAOSwNSxVbwWX
If it works or you can use it to establish a base line before you fill your boat up i think its a winner.
interested to see what you guys think
I just saw this post started 10 years ago ?
its still an issue and im keen to see what you guys do now
I bought the russian one for 110$, it reads 99 on every sample i tested, rip off, dont waste your money#! Let me know if yours works, mine dont!
I have a very simple device that compares the different gasoline samples for power. the one that produces the most pressure per sample is the best. I measure a sample by weight, gram scale, ignite it with a spark, all samples treated equal, surprising results. For my own use, I am retired I was just curious, not sure what to do with results. Doesnt measure octane but does tells differences. Older the gas the less pressure it produces, I dont know what stations use the higher octane but my research says not much difference in grades. Always fill up at a busy gas station, older the gas crappier .
