I have a Toyota 86 which has to have 93 octane to run decent. When fuel prices hit over $5 per gallon, I thought I would try this Octane Boost with 87 and 89 octane gas. First I tried 89 and it worked just like 93 octane. So I tried 87 and the car ran great with the booster. So now until the prices go back down below $3 per gallon, I will use this. The 86 is a 2.1 liter horizontally opposed 4 cylinder sports car and you have to keep the RPMs up for power. The AMSOil Booster keeps it running as well as 93 octane. We also have a Honda Pilot that I tried a bottle in it with 87 octane and it seems like the Pilot picks up faster, has more power and pickup on take off. I have used AMSOil products in the Harley Davidsons I used to have and the engine oil, transmission oil and gas additives works great in those also.
With the soaring gas prices, I wanted to try the octane booster for my Toyota 86 Sports Car. It works great. I can run 87 octane in the car with 8 ounces of this mixed with ten gallons of gas. The car accelerates as if it had 93 octane in it. My Honda Pilot normally uses 87 octane but runs much better with this mixed with the gas. I recommend it and will continue using it.
No sure how this product will protect the valve seats.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

More Bounce to the Ounce
June 02, 2022
My 2008 Cadillac DTS takes high-test only. Just on a whim I tossed in a bottle of Octane Boost after filling the tank. Now, I'm a pretty careful driver, and I generally obey the speed limits. However, on my drive out to the farm there are some pretty steep hills. By slowing down before the uphill slope, I was able to gun the engine and just haul up those hills. The improvement in my car's acceleration was quite noticeable; that thing just bounced forward! As I got up to the speed limit, I backed off the throttle, but what a thrill. I wish I had used Octane Boost in my motorcycles. Please obey all laws and be careful on the road, but you can still have some real fun out there.
I use this stuff frequently on my ‘19 Indian Chieftain. On road trips I occasionally can only fill up with 87 regular on a empty tank. That’s where Amsoils octane boost comes in very handy.Never had any problems with this additive and you can tell a difference in performance. If you ever heard a v- twin rattle on 87 octane you won’t like it!
