Have any of you guys ever tried using a knock sensor?The idea being(if practical)that i could run a little more advance and not worry about inconsistant pump gas quality at the same time.So if you could give me any advice(or stories of your experiences)it would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the tip but i'm afraid we are restricted to using pump gas and a maximum of 100 ron octane(no additives allowed).

knock sensors are for pass car-Lt trucks only they retard the timing when they sens knock.its just not the thing to do with a race engine.with good pump gas 93-above oct and about 30-37 deg of total ing timing it shouldnt knock.

Airplane fuel is manufactured in various combinations of 100 octane. Most small aiports (airfields) have it readily available for sale at about $2.25 to $2.50 a gallon; however, I'd put in some research before running it.
