I have to use it when I go out of town .
My 429 runs great on 98 octane but miss fires and runs on on anything less.
Where the petrol station doesn't have 98, I put 91 in and a bottle of boost and have no problems.
Cons, I don't know of any.

Yep,..... I've used Torco before with good results.


FWIW,......Torco is the ONLY octane booster I would use. The rest of the stuff on the market is pretty much crap.

Would there be anyway for someone to tell you had the Torco in the tank? Does it smell or anything? Our mud class gets picky sometimes.
