I just my chip back from Wett this morning and I am going to install it on sunday and I need to know what I should do about gas. I currently have a half tank of 89 and the chip calls for 91. Is it going to ping like hell if I just go to the gas station and top off with 93. Please let me know-quickly

Thanks

Michael

Topping it off with 93 would likely get you pretty close to 91 mixture in your tank. Not sure if an octane booster would help or you could simply drive it down to a 1/4 tank and then top it off.

chip

Thanks for the help but is driving it down to 1/4 with the chip will it cause any damage? Keep the help coming

I'm thinking it just won't be maximum performance but no damage. I just wouldn't do it everyday.
