Sorry but if its oxy fuel you have just been luck up to this point. A quick google search will tell you how bad it can mess up

I have done the research. I have talked to people that sell the products and engine builders. I have been running it for over a year in several of my bikes without any problems. Now, like I said, like MR12 and fuels with added ethanol I would drain. MS109 has not caused me or my buddy that both run it all the time any problems and we both leave it in our bikes. Thanks for looking out though.

It's the added oxygen that causes the problems. It oxidizes inside pumps and tanks. It well documented that the oxygenated fuels will corrode in the tank and pumps. It has nothing to do with the ethanol

I have run MS109 in both of my bikes now for about 2 years.Personally I believe the problems start when you let it evaporate.I keep both bikes fairly full or at least 1/2 a tank and have never had any issues.

I thought this was for a bike.

For your car's combo, I'd either run C16 or Q16.. Q16 is oxygenated and may require some slight tuning changes, also it is corrosive and will gum up stuff..

If you plan on leaving it in the tank/fuel system for a while, stick with C16... Both Q16 and C16 are around 117 motor octane. I still think C16 is the overall safest for full power tune ups... It will kill the O2 sensors in no time tho...
