^^^^^ 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. ;)

Its official California is the first state in the union to lock down 40 million people... Shelter in place. No food to be had in stores unless you want to live on freezer pops and whiskey. :-\

That's funny Tony- As much as I like a smoke show,  I prefer more forward motion with a haze of smoke trailing behind. :)

That's a loaded question... Most street engines running less then 10 to 1 compression ratio run just fine on pump gas. When you head on over to your race gas dealer he will have many choices for you! For starters they will ask what you have, nitrous, blower, turbos, high compression pistons etc. This will eliminate many choices if you don't fall into those categories. Next will come how do you drive your car? Do you want to race it, constant high rpm use, street performance, leaded , unleaded, oh my head is spinning. 100 unleaded is a good starting point for most street cars. VP- TRICK - SUNOCO all good stuff!

Randy- I think most on here understand your mechanical abilities and your willingness to help. A few want to wander aimlessly thru the woods without any direction. Instead of just taking positive help from people that know and understand certain things, whether it be a virus, or a 3rd member that needs some help, some should just heed the advise and would probably already on their way to a better situation.

^^^^^ And the last thing you want is a fired up, over weight, sweaty, coffee- garlic breathed owner imposing his will on you, saying thats all the money we got for you... when its way off the money for what ever economic problem is occurring at the time. Just some things to consider when choosing the right venue to turn your baby loose. :-\

Well in light of the crisis mode the country is in, I decided to take my car out for some personal time and burn a few fossils. The streets in the western hemisphere are all but deserted which allowed some spirited driving that has not been seen in decades. As it was a very good time it was very sobering looking around like an APACALYPSE moment. May it return to some resemblance of what we used to call normal. Enjoy your rides and not worry about values too much.

That's why my RED-RED 63 split didn't go there , HOLY CRAP people. Too bad :-[

Its like playing on the rail road tracks in a long tunnel, most of the time you would probably be alright... until you weren't. Be safe out there-

x 10 Jeff... Be safe and make good choices what ever that might be, for you and your family members.

Most all of my family are in the medical field, it is very real... with no hysteria. If you feel this a hoax like our fearless leader has stated, carry on as usual.
