Take a look at www.torcoracefuels.com. The "Accelerator" additive might be what you're looking for.

Remember, raising 91 octane by "one point" makes it 91.1 octane.

just out of curiosity, why do you want to bump up the octane level?

Weazel,
The best short term octane boost is torco.Ive ran just over 20* timing at the track w/ torco and never had a problem.Only caveat is I do not know the long term effects.I just use it for the track and it works like it sez.

I bought my case from MAD



edit: Do a search and see how many peeps agree w/ torco

madferraristi uses and sells Torco and is a great guy to do business with.

For the record,
I have never used any of the octane boost canned products in my truck.
