A little OT but is there an equation for calculating the end fuel octane when you mix say 'V' power with a 105 race fuel and does that specify the quantities involved?

That's strange!

My Little Grey Book of Mysteries (page 64) says 100.0 RON.

Wouldn't want to discourage a Welshamn over 1.0 RON........................... bounce

Came across this in my quest of what you get when you mix ASDA's finest with V Power :-) not sure how accurate the calculator is but it's sure to bring out the mad scientist in some....

I thought it was done on oxygen content? 2.5% or a figure similar being the definition of 'pump fuel'
