    I have a beginners question, I see my local gas station is selling racing fuel for $7.40 per gallon. Is there any benefit to running it in my Hellcat?

    If your car is not tuned for racing gas and isn't having any knock issues you will only loose power by going to higher octane.

    And if it's not unleaded racing fuel you're in for even worse issues...don't do it. No point.

    Most racing fuel is leaded fuel which is why you cannot pump it directly into your car & if used in a car with catalytic converter it will ruin it. I use a blend of 110 octane racing fuel in my BBC Pro Street car but would not use it in my Hellcat.

    Octane = resistance to detonation.

    Leaded race gas and you knock some sensors out of commission plus damage your cat convertor.

    Run unleaded race gas with more boost and yes a benefit. Stock motor and race gas. = lighter wallet and no gain .

    I run 100 octAne from one of the local pumps on both my cats and they run beautiful. No knocks and sure doesn't feel like a loss in power at all. Clean as could be imo.

    Yes it does. I often ran VP Racing MS109 in my Camaro with the racing motor I had built. Combined with no cats (it would melt them) it was a smell that stuck to your clothes and hair until you showered...

    word!!!
    I use to run 114 in my 427 SC Cobra--my clothes had to be washed or the closet would smell like the exhaust fumes from my jeans and shirt for 2-3 days!!

    Smells good for sure, but to the OP question, it won't do anything for performance. Unless you get a nice tune and up some boost :)
