100 octane Saturday drive
Its another hot, hot , hot day here in Southern California. The humidity has been absolutely insane ! After getting home from work, I jumped into the drivers seat once again. The Ferrari was filled with a tank of 100 Octane fuel, which I got when I took a ride up to west La the other night, just for that purpose. I can absolutely feel the difference when I put this fuel in the car. The combustion in the motor feels stronger, as it should when using this higher octane fuel. The exhaust is louder due to the greater force of the explosions in the cylinders, I can feel it when accelerating as well as decelerating .The car just feels a bit more muscular than on the shit 92 octane gas thats out here in California, I know higher octane fuel burns more efficiently in the motor, because it burns more slowly than the lower octane gasoline. Anyways, its very expensive,.so I only treat myself to it once in a while. The drive was uneventful, except for a couple of high speed freeway interchanges that I accelerated through at about 100+ MPH , one while passing a Prius , like it was parked..lol ..The other had a significant dip at the exit of the corner, I was amazed at the 328 s suspensions ability to keep the car glued to the road with no headshake, this with 94000 miles on the clock !! I know at some point I will replace the suspension on the car completely , but I have to say,,,at this time,the handling is absolutely incredible for a 26 year old car. I can only imagine how this car performed against other sports cars back in 1989 ,staggering !!!
