100LL is aviation fuel basically. We use it in our Cessna's. I wouldn't recommend it. You won't see any kind of huge improvement and it will probably give you the knocks and pings. Stick to what the owner's manual suggests. Are you at Embry Riddel out there?

Try it and let us know....

100LL is not a good fuel for our motors. With its chemical properties, the cooler charge temperatures lead to greatly increased condensation inside the motor when you shut it off.

The biggest drawback of 100LL is that it contains volatile compounds released under temperature and pressure (during combustion) designed to dissolve lubricating oils and flash them during combustion. The reason for this is that the bane of the forced induction carbureted aviation motor is oil-fouled plugs. This single characteristic is why people say 100LL runs “dry”. When they disassemble the motor they see very little lubricating oil in the combustion chamber or ring areas. This problem can NOT be rectified by increasing the fuel/oil ratio.

I wouldn't run it too hard if you are going to try it. I really don't think you will notice any difference performance wise. Make a point to keep an eye on your temp gauge and listen for anything out of the ordinary. Also, keep an eye on your oil level to see if you are burning anything.
