Mixing 110 with premium?

So ive been researching lately and sounds likw as long as the 110 is unleaded its ok to mix a few gals with premium. I was thinking of 1-2 gal mixed with the full tank prolie put it to 94-96 octane.....

The only thing is being tuned on 92 id either see really shitty mpg or timing would be thrown off due to the higher octane. But i think it would be ok to run a few gallons as long as im not booting all the time. Anybody try this or anything?

when you say 110 are you talking about e47 or e85.. if your thinking about mixing you actually have to MIX IT. not just put a couple of gallons of higher octane gas in the tank and then fill it with 91. Also you have to think about consistency and if you do mix it outside of your gas tank SAFETY

i tried this myself way easier just to fully convert

I'm assuming he's talking about race gas.

You're not really going to see any benefits unless you're tuned for it. Be just a waste of money in my opinion, especially with how expensive the shit is.

This is correct.
I ix that shit all the time, it is getting hard to find 92 or 93 around me and the 91 is shitty as hell at some stations. A gallon or 2 of 110 cleans up any knock very well. Too bad it is 8 dollars a gallon!

Great idea if you retune for it.

He doesn't have a very good tune on it now the way it sounds. Somehow he has made it last over 100k lol

Hahaha its a trifecta tune from Vince himself. Me and a buddy recently hooked HPT up to the car and changed a few things didnt touch the tune. Current tune is bout 2 years old its what Vince calls his "CONSERVATIVE TUNE" all dyno or road tunes are on 92 octane.

Im on 111k miles right now car feels great actually thanks RECARO86
