When you have BEAU S  money you don't worry too much about little things like the virus. Hopefully they will go across the street to the display of cars that only some got to see over the years. It is the greatest collection of cars you could imagine. Puts most good sized museums to shame. Pure awesomeness. ;D

Thanks for the lesson. I don't get out enough, and try different cuisine. A couple years ago was traveling thru Texas and Oklahoma stopped in world famous GUILLEYS for a bite and the young honey asked if I wanted to try rocky mountain oysters? I said sure why not... She served what looked like deep fried easter eggs. I finished my stein of beer and asked my buddy what are these? He smiled and said they are BULL BALLS and before I had a chance to back up from my plate, all the locals were grabbing my oysters.....  True Story. :-[

Here's the down side to running AV GAS. While it does have a higher octane rating your car wont perform any better. Your car wont rattle and knock, but it wont run like a scalded dog either. I used to fill up at all the local airports back in the day for so called street race enhancement fluid. One day I went with a buddy for some DYNO time I thought what a waste of money. A little shop from the way back machine was BOB JENNINGS dyno service, and in this shop were some big hitters in the SO CAL racing scene. I was proud to share that I knew how to get more performance on the cheap and they said oh yea how do you do it? AV GAS. In a kind way they laughed and said you cant gain much that way. I inquired why not? The very well heeled experienced engine guy said that while it has anti knock properties in it, the design of this fuel is designed for high altitude and constant rpms like 3000 rpm. With todays technology they have a fuel available for every application. If you went to ANY major motorsport race in the world and asked do you guys run AV GAS ? The answer would be NO! Everyone knows about it but it wont help engines that are needing different fuel components to maximize horsepower and reliability for their engine combos. Hope this helps a little-

That would be a description of 100 % of the used car sales types. :-[

God bless the Hicks, with a gift of gab and showmanship. They knew what people wanted. SHELBY and WORTHINGTON are perfect examples.  ;)

Take it VERY SERIOUSLY folks it is not a democratic hoax like our fearless leader has suggested. My 27 year old nephew in New York just got it and my aunt in Italy has it. They were not careless people doing careless things, just stay away from each other for awhile no matter if you feel invincible or not.

The factory may not have created any, but the need for street and track dominance created its own niche, ;D

No its real, and has been caught on camera a few times. Trying to capture those images and post here is seemingly like me trying to learn Chinese. :-[

^^^^^ I look at that statement as the same thing. No work , no money, no food in any of the stores, convenience stores, or even liquor stores. There are a few cup of noodle containers at various gas stations tho. :-\

How much toluene should you mix with 10 gallons of 91 no ethanol pump gas to get, say, 100 octane?
In reading Dougs response is pretty accurate, I didn't want to write a thesis on the subject. A quick overview of what you need would be the shade tree mechanics way of testing. To understand THERMODYNAMICS and how it relates to engines is a simple listening to when your engine starts to rattle or ping. For starters you need to start off with the highest octane gas you can start with for obvious reasons, then you will need to adjust your timing to advance or retard  the timing as a basis for testing. If you don't hear anything you don't need to continue and waste your money on additives. If you do, add about 1 ounce per gallon of gas this will fix most street engines pinging problems. Add or subtract as needed to find the sweet spot. ;)
