Why do you need to put 93 or octane "boost" in a stock LT1?

104+ is like $10 a bottle isnt it?
So is this for a big night out? or everyday?
I run 93...$0.20/gal more X 20 gal=$4

I took this from the internet,.

Quote :
Sample Mixture

To make your own octane booster, it is easiest to make up a large batch, and then bottle it up in "dosage-size" uses. Below is the basic formula of one of the popular octane booster products. To make eight 16 ounce bottles (128 oz = 1 gal):

100 oz of toluene for octane boost
25 oz of mineral spirits (cleaning agent)
3 oz of transmission fluid (lubricating agent)

This product is advertised as "octane booster with cleaning agent *and* lubricating agent!". Diesel fuel or kerosene can be substituted for mineral spirits and light turbine
