We blend Q16 primarily for intercooled, forced induction drag race applications. Best of all, many regard it as the top oxygenated, leaded fuel produced by VP. It is required to increase fuel flow by 4-6% because it's highly oxygenated. However, this make 3-5% more power than competitive 116 octane fuels. Furthermore, the added fuel flow also effectively increases the octane of Q16 by 6-8 numbers above its standard ASTM octane rating. As a result, it yields greater detonation protection.
