mix 1 part xylene 115 oct or 1 part toulene 114 oct to 2 parts 93/94 octane gasoline and you'll have 100octane, wow that was hard.

you can also/should add in 1/10 part Maverls Mystery oil if you are making a big batch

funny, from what i read, people were paying 8-10 dollars a gallon for the xylene, or 6-8 for the toulene, then you figure atleast $1.50 a gal for 93 octane and your looking at $9.50-11.50 a gal for xylene+93 octane mix (1:1 ratio), and $7.50-$9.50 for the toulene mix (again 1:1 ratio), so you figure splitting the prices in half and your looking anywhere from $3.75 a gallon to 5.75 a gallon. On the other hand, 100 octane around here cost about $3.50 a gallon (or so i remember), and i think i figured out one time a 55 gallon drum of i think it was sunco 112 unleaded (not sure on that one, just remember it was unleaded stuff) came out to be about $6.00 a gallon.
imo im gonna stick with the real stuff..to much research has gone into modern day fuels for me to try to 'mix' some stuff up, i love making and fabricating things, but i'd like to see long term effects on these cars with jugs of 'paint thinner' and 'cleaner' poured into dsm tanks of 93 octane.
thats just my $.02
someone prove me wrong, so i can try it as well

Xylene-5 gallons for $15.00
93 octane- $1.50 a gallon

You need to mix it 1:1 which will give you an Octane of about 101, which is $2.25 a gallon.

Here you can buy 100 octane for 6.50 to 7.00 a gallon at the pump or 112 octane leaded gas at the track for around 7.00 a gallon ( which you can only fill up if the track is open.

A lot fo you guys are pretty ignorant to the fact. Most gas has 30% xylene in it anyways. So adding Xylene isn't goin to hurt it.

Overseas they use up to 45% Xylene in their gas thats why they have higher octane at most pumps than we do.

Who makes the 109? I was almost willing to put money on the fact that 104 is the highest UNLEADED you can get. VP and Sunoco are the two manufacturers I am aware of. I can get 76 Race Fuel (100 octane UNLEADED) for about $4/gallon.

OH what a sweet smell!!


Two words:AVIATION FUEL I use to work at a body shop and we made a mud truck out of a 57 chevy nomad anyway we were sick of driving to the nearest station to get 100 oct.(45 mins away) So we went 6 miles to a small air strip (really small, grass runway and all) and got 112-116 oct. for $ 3 -$3.50 a gal. This was just 2months ago. Don't know if it's the same every where or we just got a good deal but that's what we do. And oh what a sweet smell!!

Aviation fuel is leaded. They still use leaded gas in aircraft because most of the engines used in general aviation were built during the lead days, so it's needed to protect the exhaust valves.

It does smell nice though...

A sniffer? I'd be a little more concerned about plugging your $250 high flow CAT, or at least fouling your O2 sensor!
