Who uses race gas
 
was wonder which gas you guys with the CRF450 run high test pump or race gas?

unless you have significantly upped the compression or are running lean jetting, you're wasting your $$.

ultimate 4 is the only fuel to show a HP gain.

Three of my riding buddies have CRF 450's. Two run Amoco 93 exclusively and the third guy runs the Ultimate 4. The third guy put a big bore kit on the 450 or 480 as it is now. He also owns the local gas station that sells Ultimate 4 and is the only one of us that can afford it at $8 per gallon. He does say that he could tell a difference from the Ultimate 4 vs. 93 pump gas. I believe one of the old issues of Motorcross Action had the Ultimate 4 giving the CRF 450 a 4-6 HP gain over stock. Sorry so lengthy but hope it helps.

only riders in the B and Money classes will need bikes moded out enough to use race gas. but if yo do have a porting job and higher comperssion you need to get it.

Chevron Pump 91 here. To be honest, I could never stomach the price of race gas.

Uh why don't you compare it to race gas prices and then lets talk again.

Just curious, has anyone tried using an octane booster that you can buy from an auto parts store. I use 91 octane in my truck and I added some of this last week to one tank just to see if there was a difference and there was a noticable difference. It was like $2 a can and the can treats up to 20 gallons of gas.

91 pump gas is the highest you can get in So Cal.
