So the gas station up the road from my place is offering 107 octane fuel. It is the "fuel of the v8 supercars". One day I might get a full tank of this fuel for my 6th gen 5sfe Celica. (I always use 98 fuel) It'll probably be like $80 for a full tank though. Would there be a noticeable difference with 107 octane fuel? It probably will not gain 30 hp though. Still I'd like to try it.

Assuming it is a United.

I would be hesitant to run E85 through the stock lines, injectors and pump. It will strip all of the built up crap out and send it through your lines and block your fuel filter. Not to mention it will possibly destroy most of the seals and rubber hoses.

Yeah it is e85, So would it do that to most car's fuel systems? If so why would it be offered? Maybe it's just there for all the v8 hoons that live in my area..

Modern fuel systems are generally designed to use it.

From the United website, also include vehicles(modified) upgraded to use it.

E85 is an alternative fuel that contains 85 per cent ethanol and 15 per cent regular petrol. The ethanol component, which is produced by United at its Dalby Refinery from locally sourced Sorghum Grain, offers consumers a range of benefits. This fuel is only suitable for Flex Fuel vehicles such as the new Holden Commodore.

That's not a very big range.

It is not only found in "Commodore based" areas.

I wouldn't use it, the standard cars that can take the fuel will have a flex sensor and can adjust the tune accordingly to what fuel is run.

My friend ran 100 octane (p100) from United in his WRX and found that it ran like crap because of the ethanol content.

My car is tuned for e85 so runs fine

If your engine does not detonate on 98 fuel you will gain nothing from the higher octane fuel.
