save ur money. unless u have more compression or need for this stuff. its not gonna help... plus nitromethane pure is nasty stuff and contaminates ur oil. have u ever seen top fuel car.. they only run 90% nitro per rules and have to change engine oil after each pass.. plus if they start it and run in on nitro... it wont restart without changin plugs... this stuff is just additive and/or gimmick.

First let me appoligies about my spelling i KNOW IT SUCKS.

the benifits are

Boosts Octane characteristics
Increases Horsepower/Torque
Oxygenates Fuel Base
Lowers Engine Temperature
Lubricates Top End
Cleans Combustion Deposits
Lowers Emissions
Raises Miles per Gallon
Instant Throttle Response
Stops Engine Run-on

you can choose either the 20 or 40% nitronethane wich is much less that top fuelers plus its mixed with pump gas instead of methenol like in the top fuelers case. Im not looking to increase the octain rating sence wee all know you in theory anyway get more power out of a lower octaine rating. Im more looking at the fact that the nitro methane releases oxigen when burned. Plus the engin runs cooler. same priciple as u4e or streetblaze VP gasolene except that this is a fraction of the price at total ending cost of $5.50 a gallon if you pay 3.30 for premium unleaded. also nitromethane is a better oxginatore that the ethinol used in street blaze 100 and the mtbe's used in u4e are eligal in my state. plus u4e has to be drained and flushe after use or it will destroy you fuel pump and injectors. I know many people that use it in there cars with a noticible differense just wondering if anyone here has used it. here is some more info off there web site.

The Aromatic and Mechanical approach to building octane and
fuel energy in Premium Unleaded Gasoline

Price Chemical nitromethane based fuel additives offer a unique approach to boosting high performance and racing fuels. Each formula is gasoline miscible, and delivers maximum results when used as recommended.

Nitromethane is all powerful, and will deliver 1.63 moles of reactant per mole of product compared to gasoline, 1.0 moles of reactant on average. Nitromethane is also 33% more powerful than methanol. In addition, each Power Fuel formula is packed with oxygen, which releases on combustion and acts like a chemical supercharger. This becomes more important with increasing altitude and hotter temperatures.

More than .10 reduction in E.T., and several MPH can be gained with Power Fuel formulas when used as directed.

Octane characteristics are enhanced chemically and mechanically.

Nitromethane globules take longer to atomize and burn when dispersed in gasoline.
Proprietary lubrication will homogenize fuel/air mixture, and help prevent pockets of separation.
Lower engine temperatures will lower octane demand.

Each Power Fuel formula will synergize with unleaded blends for a multiple effect. The more aromatic the fuel base, the greater the synergy. Even leaded race gas can be back blended with unleaded premium or unleaded race gas for a significant improvement when using Power Fuel.

Cooler engine temperatures from higher heats of vaporization allow more fuel to be packed into the combustion charge. Power Fuel formulas act like a chemical sponge to pull heat from surrounding engine metal. This will drop engine temperatures as much as 10-15°F in extended racing. Lower temperatures also reduce demand for higher octane fuel, especially with aluminum heads.

Valve lubrication is provided by the same plasticizer used to keep nitromethane dispersed in gasoline. A two-part mixture, with high molecular weight will homogenize the fuel base and help prevent separation of free radical hydrogen peroxides. Unlike valve train protection already included in gasoline, the complex product in Power Fuel formulas will help control flame front travel with additional BTU (British Thermal Unit) that takes longer to burn, and then exhaust itself clean.

Combustion chamber deposits will be reduced, and parts will stay much cleaner.
