I haven't bought any for a while, so I don't even know if you can still get it. . . but i was wondering if its worth getting here in California since we only have 91 octane?? I just got chipped and noticing some pinging on hard acceleration. Any help would be great!

Re: is the $2 Octane Booster at Pep Boys, Kragen, etc worth it? (John A)

They say it rasies your octane 5-7 points, but what they dont tell you is that it is .05-.07 points. My suggestion would be to get some toulane from your local paint store. Its a paint thinner, I know it sounds odd, but it works. You add one gallon to about 4 gallons of gas, you will get about 100 octane. Good luck. Oh yeah IMO dont bother with the octane boosters.
