He"s got one thing right. They use it in the air with no place to pull over. And unless the track you are pulling on is at 10,000 feet of elevation you are shooting yourself in the foot. Our A that is mildly built lost 15 horsepower on the dyno compared to premium 93 octane with TORCO fuel additive. Aviation gas just plain isn"t made for low elevations. Thats why they use at high elevation where air is thinner and NOT on the track...

 Re: av gas in reply to 51JDAinPA, 11-15-2012 19:21:37  
I have run drag cars and drag boats for many years and I have used 106 and 110 and even 116, not to mention methanol, and i can tell ya that NONE of them work unless you TUNE YOUR CARBURETOR AND TIMING to run them. Such is the same with avgas. It is cleaner and it is 100 octain so you have less chance of detination from pump gas and when you adjust your carburetor to flow correctly it will run just as good as the 110 racing fuel. If you dont compensate for octain change you are shooting yourself in the foot and alll those that say that they "went and got some racing fuel and it ran like a scalded dog with nothing else done" were only running the engine too rich in first place.. I have used them all. And lest you think Im all blow, I have owned and have driven drag cars from stock to all out blown rear engine dragsters on alky ( 150mph in 1/8 mile at 4.5 seconds, that is just over 1400 hp friends). I learned from experience.
