Chevron, So much better, keeps your valves and combustion chamber clean. Started using it awhile ago when my friend and I heard that, burned, chevron smells like racing fuel I noticed that it lasted a little longer and that it felt smoother. My friend on the other got to really see the advantage. Now my friend I'm talking about is into old VW bugs knowing VW bugs, the engines are very easy to remove and disassembled. So this being his 7th time having it dissassembled, and he started using chevron, his entire valve train was CLEAN, like shiny. Previously he ran what ever was cheapest and always had sludge inside.



On top of this, some of you may have heard of Bisimoto. I was recently talking to him and asked him about which fuel he likes, he answered Chevron, due to the formulas and additives being far superior to other fuel companies. I believe he even did a dyno test and found chevron made slightly more hp

is 93 octane a must? (ka24de)

my gas door says use premium only. And being the ka24de is slow as fck and has very medium compression why does it require 93?? I know 10.0 + would need it but i just do not see the need for 93 octane(or whatever premium is at a given station).

LOL oh boy, ill try to help you here.
It could be any kind of motor, even my buds honda metropolitan we run 100 octane in that sucker and it flies!
The higher octane burns more evenly, burns less oil, more efficienctly, the combustion cycle is much more powerful & your oil will last longer with less carbon deposits in the motor.
Obviously you CAN run a lower rating of fuel, but you will not achieve anything close to the engines maximum potential.
It actually bothers me when some ppl say hey my motor is N/A and its a KA so its pointless to do anything dad dude dad dude.
Man just run like 1/2 tank 91 and go put a 1/4 in of 100 octane, and then your question will be answered.

P.S. Team Ferrari for Formula One runs Shell 91 Look it up if you want bra!

Welcome to Zilvia where people giving answers know less than the people with questions.

Scope doesn't know what he's talking about, please don't listen to him.

Fine.

Higher octane rating does not mean more energy when burned. It means more resistant to ignition. That means you can run a more aggressive tune/timing on it without pinging or knocking. You do not magically make more power on a higher octane without a tune on a low power, low compression n/a 4.

Damn ricers that think 100 octane works like giggle juice... lawl

ok thanks fuego.

I was only asking because my fuel door says use premium unleaded only. And i know the ka24de isn't a powerhouse nor a high compression engine so i was just wondering. I have been using 93 octane since the day we put the engine in.

Thanks for clarifying

Use chevron now. It's the cheapest and closest to my place. Right now it's 3.99 for 87

I do use shell when my Ralph's rewards points get high enough and I can redeem them at the station. It's nice to be able to fill up before a trip and instantly get a 20 cents a gallon discount.

0 octane
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heptane

100 octane
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2,2,4-Trimethylpentane


Notice the only difference is the shape of the molecule.
Typical gasoline contains a slew of different shapes that average out to the octane you hope you put in the tank.

The accessibility of the gasoline molecule to oxygen radicals is affected by shape, as well as the packing ability of the gasoline molecules, which influences vaporization, and kinetics when reactions take place.


At the end of the day its all fat without heavy carboxylic ends. But just like in the body where some fats are healthy and some are not so much...

If I am driving the econobox that drinks anything, cheapest 87 I can find and not get stabbed at... For the toys usually I prefer a Gulf or Buc-ees if it's not around then stripes or shell 93... unless I can run to the strip for that 115/145p
