A word about:


     "A numerical measure of the anti-knock properties of motor fuel."  The higher the number value the stronger the resistance to pre-ignition and knock.  Octane is measured using two methods, the research and the motor method.  The research method usually gives a higher octane, but is tested in a manner that applies to low-RPM, low load situations.  The motor method usually gives a lower number, but relates to high-RPM and high-load applications more closely associated with racing conditions.  The average of these two is commonly called the road octane, anti-knock index, or R+M/2.  This octane is also the yellow sticker that you see on the pump at your local gas station.   Higher octane ratings allow an engine builder to produce maximum power without danger of detonation.  Every engine has a different requirement for octane.

Specific Gravity

The ratio of the mass of a liquid to the mass of an equal volume of distilled water at 60 F.  Key specification to consider when tuning an engine.   Determines the density of the fuel and the amount the fuel represents in the air/fuel ratio.  The heavier the fuel (larger number) the richer the fuel will burn.


TRICK Products are compatible in all fuel systems designed to be used with gasoline.

2-Cycle Oil

TRICK mixes well with popular brands of motor oils both synthetic and petroleum based.  Works well with high quality castor oils.


Fuels containing lead must be used for off highway racing purposes only.  Leaded fuels will damage catalytic converters and oxygen sensors when used in vehicles expressly designed for unleaded fuels.  Leaded fuels deteriorate quickly when exposed to direct sunlight.  Keep storage containers and gas tanks sealed tightly at all times, and place them in a cool environment away from ultra-violet light.
