    2019 SVHO with Stage 1. Just got a floating dock at our marina (renting from them) but the fuel dock only has 89 octane.

    Ugh…

    For anyone new to using fuel additives, pay attention to the prescribed product handling and health cautions when using fuel additives.

    Carrying fuel additive product on board a PWC (but not yet mixed into the fuel tank) should be minimized. Spillage or leaking inside the hull is not desirable.

    $24.99 x 2 for every tank.

    I'm paying $4.77/gal for 93 octane and thought that was too expensive.

    Usually octane boost is used only occasionally, it will ruin your plugs much faster, Can you get 92 at a different marina nearby.?
