You mean blended 91 and 100 octane 50/50?

PencilGeek -- First thanks so much for all the time and effort you've put into your dyno database. It's outstanding!

Second and forgive me if I may have missed it in your write up. But how long will it take the ECU to adjust to the 100 octane fuel? If I get down to E and fill up with 100 octane will the ECU adjust after a few gallons? Maybe thats not even the correct question but I would think the ECU would have to do something to take advantage of the higher octane fuel.

Thanks,

Ken

I wouldn't fill up a whole tank of 100 octane. I would go 50/50 of 91/100 octane. Should give you about 95 octane.
