    they raise your octane rating by 0.1... they are a complete rip off...

    93 mobil is what i put in my car i dont like shell as it burn to fast now that they changed it with that v-power crap. it was better the old way imo. also there is a good wright up in high pro. ponitac i think on octane boosters. they are all junk and dont do any thing. its beter to mix race gas and pump then to use them.
