Stop using that now! It does virtually nothing to raise the octane raiting. Do a search, this subject has been discussed several times.

That 104 stuff is virtually worthless boosting at octane.
Use some toluene or hiigh octane race fuel. What octane do you need???

$217 for a 55 gallon drum at my local chemical plant. Is that a good deal, $3.95 a gallon?

I would say Toluene if you buy it in 55 gallon drums. If you're buying it by the gallon, it might be toss up vs 114+ race fuel.
