What fuel do you guys reccommend
Saturday, March 09, 2013 7:14 PM
Ok soooo after finding that our car brains are @!#$ and don't have a stoich command value, NO E85.

What are you guys running for fuel or reccommend? Wanting a high octane.

I run chevron 94.

Any premium fuel will do though.

I'm sure someone will say different, but I've always noticed the least amount of knock, most amount of timing advance, and the best efficiency with Hess 93 (when compared to other brand 93 octane).

Well after some reading this morning they are saying Chevron 94 up here is absolute crap and is about the same as 91 in the states...FML!

Im still in the camp that thinks E85 is do-able. I need to get some time to do some chemistry to back some of it up though.

Check this thread out if you already havent.

Sunoco 260 gt plus is the best out there, 104 octane unleaded race fuel.




On the inside my car looks like a fighter jet.

That car is still running strong on e85 and the stock PCM, we are about to swap in the ld9 computer to run speed density and more boost but as of now the car is at 414whp

Actually just got done reading that thread before checking on this one. I am still a tad leary on it. And the availability is about the same between e85 and race fuel around here. Im going to get on the phone with a tuner tomorrow that uses efi live and see what he has to say. And my oyher concern with the e85 is the fact that its not always really e85. Would have better consistency with the race fuel... thats the biggest factor for me.

Totally understand where youre coming from. We'll have E85 around here for a months and months then the supply will just dry up like that.

Are you doing one tune for pump gas and another for race gas?

That's kind of what I had in mind. Im only like 90% surehow thisis acheived.



Re: What fuel do you guys reccommend

i think its either use HPT yourself to flash back and forth or have two PCMs. One tuned for race gas and one for pump gas. Then switch back and forth.

For some reason I was under the impression that you tune on say 20 on race gas then a lower psi for normal. That is probably yotally wrong

You do. You run the race gas to let you go higher on psi and farther advanced on timing. Your ecu can only store one set of maps. Your fuel and spark maps wont be the same for race gas and pump gas. Probably a lot more conservative on the latter.
