# Using Toluene As Octane Booster

Using Toluene As Octane Booster. Recently the cost of xylene and toluene all jacked up over \$2 a gallon wholesale. I put 2 gallons in my 16 gallon total tank of 91 octane, giving me 93.8 average octane.

Toluene and xylene are old school octane boosters. Recently the cost of xylene and toluene all jacked up over \$2 a gallon wholesale. I mixed 3 gallons of 92 with 1 gallon of xylene and a few ounces of marvel mystery oil.

### Toluene, 121 Ron, 107 Mon, 114 Aki.

As far as the toluene goes, i did some simple equations using a dilution calculator and found that you would need to mix 3 gallons of toluene with 12 gallons of 87 octane gas to get a mixture of 92 octane. And slower burning speeds because those same strong chemical bonds that increase octane will. That equates to 92+92+92+117=393 / 4 = 98.25 octane.

### Toluene's Octane Rating Is 121 Aki And Is A Primary Octane Additive In Normal, Premium Gas.

After installing powerchip upgrade, i frequently use toluene to boost octane. Toluene has been used as an additive and octane booster for ages. My understanding is they're corrosive to fuel lines, rings, gaskets as well as internals within injectors, can gunk injectors, etc.

### Xylene, Toluene And Denatured Alcohol Are All Octane Boosters.

Ethanol, 108.7 ron, 89.7 mon, 99.15 aki. See my simple calcs below: It seems that toluene has been preferred for cost savings (at the time the arcticle was written).

### Xylene Is A Tad Over 114 Octane, Toluene Is 114 And Alcohol Is Slightly Lower.

Toluene and xylene (aromatic hydrocarbons) are already in the pump gas that you put in your car.30% max in cali and 40% max elsewhere.its one of the main things that gives higher octane pump gas its higher octane. At 30% mix, i occasionally get slight hesitation and sometimes engine stall. To make eight 16 ounce bottles (128 oz = 1 gal):

### Toluene Is Well Absorbed Through The Lung, With An Alveolar Retention.

Recently the cost of xylene and toluene all jacked up over \$2 a gallon wholesale. And many brands of store bought octane bootser. Toluene is an aromatic hydrocarbon solvent often referred as methylbenzene.
