    No 93 octane where I live and I have been mixing boostane with 91 to make 93. Are there any long term negative effects using it in every tank that I should worry about?

    I'm not familiar with Boostane, but most of the octane boosters I've seen did very little to actually boost the octane of a tank, something like 0.1 octane points per ten gallons. Is it actually doing anything worthwhile?

    if your boosted with cats they will fail anyway so go catless and continue to use the octane boost. nothing worst then getting a bad tank of gas with boost...

    For most octane boosters, yes. Boostane does actually work though and it's the only product (or one of the only ones) that I'm aware of that is recommended by Whipple.

    race gas-octane booster works, every can comes with a chart to show you how much you need to add to get the desires octane level. Vp racing fuels octanium also works well. Torco works well..etc they all have different price ranges...Amazon sells them all...
