Smart man you are FireZ,
You tried it and you liked it just as I did. I have 2 302 cars and run them on av.I mix 5 gallons of av to 4 gallons of premiunm. That is just my mixture no science involved,I was going by what the fuel guy told me, it just works for me.I agree with hotrod 68,my self I could not get spark rattle out of my green z without retarding timing so much it ran like a weak 305. Im sure you can tune like others said to fix it.But I find it easier to go to the airport with my jazz jugs, fill them, and mix as needed.
It only took me 5 gallons of av gas to sell me on it. For those who want to pay $8.00 a gallon feel free. I pay about around $.60 more a gallon for av gas than premium and I feel good about that.
I hoped jerry would chime in on this one.Many years ago this same subject came up. I dont remember if it was here or Team Camaro, but Jerry brought up the fact that lead in the fuel was intended for carb and valve lubrication,And how unleaded fuels didnt provide for that.He reccomended av gas.I was leary about using it myself,even after local guys told me about it until Jerry said it was cool and then I tried it,and the results were excellent.I then recommended it to another friend in town with a 302 69 Z. He has told me many times how much his car " Woke up" after using av gas. Also where I live,I have no idea where you can by the Sunoco fuel everyone talks about.
Ive had people tell me av gas is no good,silicone brake fluid is no good,sea foam is a joke. I believe in all of them because they work for me.
Also Av gas is blue,my favorite color.
