Since I'm not sure what exactly 117 Octane contains..most likely to me probably nothing near Reformulated fuel, it could either be Ethanol or Methanol (methyl alcohol) which most race cars use. Methanol can be used straight or blended with gasoline. Usually mixed with 5% methanol and 5% co-solvent in gasoline. Used to reduce ozone formation and air toxins. Has very high resistance to detonation. EXREMLEY CORROSIVE (the PTG M3 engine can only last about 33hours)...will void manufactuer warrenty. Using this fuel will eat your engine.
