    Race gas?

    How much would I need to make a difference in a half tank of fuel? (9 gallons) would octane ratings would be safe for my car?

    Just run 91 or 93 octane. You won't see any advantage by running racing fuel. In fact, you may even decrease in performance.

    Unless you have all the supporting engine mods, and the proper tune, don't bother. At that point, you'd have just a strip only car more than likely. Unless you've got more done than listed in your sig, it won't help. I only run 93, and have a pretty heavy build.
    It's not how fast you can go. It's how fast you can get there.
