    92 Octane pump with ethanol and Torco +4 Octane for 96

    Trying to get my AFRs up a tab, like .5 so it would be in the mid/high 12s at idle and 12.2ish at wot with 8500 rpms and 13psi.

    Presently with the use of 94 Octane with no ethanol is giving me about .5 AFRs below a more efficient level..

    I don't trust the 92 with ethanol pump fuel in Washington but wouldn't mind the added 10% ethanol if it helps increase my AFRs .5 across the whole band width.

    I was thinking of using the 92 with Ethanol and adding a base +4 Octane dosage with Torco booster...

    Would this help increase my AFRs, lean the readings without the risk of poor quality 92 detonation?

    Torco wont improve your afrs but higher octane will aid in preventing detonation. Torco will kill your plugs every 10hrs or so.

    I am aware of this. But will the 10% ethanol in the Washington 92 pump fuel help AFRs?

    Will not help, nor will it hurt.

    Instead of Torco you guys could add a little Avgas blue to each tank. That used to work great for an old street bike I had.

    Blue is only 100octane, I'm blending to 102-104 right now, av green would work for me but cheaper to go torco route or blend c16

    If you guys are really on the limit like that then you need to just run 100LL like I did instead of blending. Torco will orange out and waste your plugs but it does work. C16 is great but be prepared to burn up your bank account with one of these skis drinking 16 gallons in a few hours of fun.

    Personally, I would add a fuel pressure regulator to your setup and adjust with that. Or, I would add a few gallons of e-85 till you get your desired result. But mixing fuel is kind of a pain so I’d go with the first option.
