which powerstroke motor as there have been 4 completely different motors called "powerstroke." At full nuts the fuel rail pressure on my truck is ~30k psi (thats not a typo). I just worry that the small viscosity difference between tranny fluid and diesel might be too much. However in an emergency I'd run it as I wouldn't be raping the truck.

All gas comes from the same spigot. The only difference between what you buy at any one station from any other station is detergent package (added into a tanker after filling from the common spigot) and alcohol content.

I doubt there is one motorcycle on Motohouston that will make more hp on 93 octane fuel than it woould on 87.

Guess what, it's not about horsepower. It's about detonation (knocking) and engine damage

Tranny fluid in you filter at change is more to clean the injector. Not so much lube it. All modern diesels have compensated for low sulfer fuel. The main culprit was injector pumps failing because of lack of lube

You think its gonna make peak HP if its detonating or knocking?
You must not know Mathews. He has been around since the invention of the internal combustion engine

Sorry, I think you have the comprehension issue. If you think your bike is gonna detonate or knock on 87 your a tard. If there was early detonation it wouldn't make better HP than 93. He was making the point that a very small number of bikes here would have a detonation issue at 87. Higher compression bikes could most likely get by with 87. Ask Mathews. He has sprayed on oxygenated 87

Dont talk when you know only what you have read here. I have seen mine produce more on 87 on a dnyo. I have also read the plugs and know for sure there was no detonation issues.

Have your ridden my bikes? Guess what, both occasionally knock under certain conditions using name brand premium unleaded. Like I said it's not about horsepower. Octane rating is a measure of the resistance of petrol and other fuels to autoignition in spark-ignition internal combustion engines, period.

Wow. Thats all news to me. No wonder I run 103 or higher on the spray. I have only worked in refineries for the past 15 years.

What are these "certain occasional conditions" that cause "your" knocks? If you dont mind me asking

High air temperature, low rpms, acceleration with light throttle.
