Octane Ratings and the 4 Stroke Engine Cycle - EricTheCarGuy
I know it has been a while but better late than never. I recently had a conversation with someone who wanted to know why octane ratings were important and what they meant, I thought this would make a perfect video for ETCG and here we are. So in this video we go over the 4 parts of the 4 stroke cycle in a gasoline engine and how it is effected by octane. I like this video because it is a window into the direction I see these videos going in the future, more dynamic and more thought out. I hope you enjoy it and find it informative. Special thanks to Ford Motor Company for the use of their animation in this video. I did add some stuff of my own by the way, thanks guys. --- Click below and Stay Dirty Visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com http://ericthecarguy.com/ Visit EricTheCarGuy Forum http://www.ericthecarguy.com/forum/default.aspx Visit my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/EricTheCarGuy --- BTW Keep checking back with EricTheCarGuy.com, in the not too distant future I will be updating the site and making more in dept videos available for purchase.

Fifth Gear's Jason Plato services Volkswizard's VW Corrado VR6 to see if can produce more power
In March 2013 we supplied Fifth Gear with a Corrado VR6 to see if following a full service and some injector cleaner, whether it would produce more power. The car was rolling road tested at our premises to get a base reading after which some Redex injector cleaner was added to a full tank of fuel. After this tank was used, the car was taken to Millbrook Proving Ground where it was rolling road tested again and after each service item was changed. Eventually the car nearly produced the full 190 bhp - what the footage didn't state was that the car was run on 95 RON unleaded rather than Super Unleaded which the car requires to produce full power - this was done to avoid clouding the effectiveness of the Redex injector treatment as Super Unleaded fuel contains similar cleaning properties.
