avgas has a s**t of lead in it to bump up the octane rating

DO NOT PUT AVGAS IN AN UNLEADED VEHICLE

use 98 octane rated fuel and u will be fine in an i6 as they have a knock sensor ... well my au does :P

and unless u have stoopid high comp or boost etc you wont get much if any benifit from the avgas, there are way better fuels you can use
liek alcohol :D

Do'nt use AVGAS in anything running a CAT as it will destroy the cat and sensors and is of no benifit unlless you are running very high compression, a HUGE CAM 8-) and aftermarket ecu or a turbo or supercharger :D AND IT IS ILLEGAL IN VEHICLES DRIVEN ON THE ROAD :twisted: :twisted:

Need to be a very light "girls shandy" or will still damage cats and sensors after a little while (take it from someone who has tried this in the quest of more power :shock: :roll: :twisted: )

Most AVGAS is 100-110LL. The LL stands for Low Lead. It is not the same content as Leaded fuel from years ago, but there is still a Lead content. Adding 1-2L to a tank is not going to do much for raising the octane, but will cause a catastrophic increase in Cat temps. If you filled with 98Ron then added 1-2L of 110Ron AVGAS, it still would not equal 100Ron fuel. Most airports will not let you fill up either, unless it is into a seperate container and you normally need to show your pilots licence (at least that was the case at Coolangatta Airport).

cheers
Scott
