ATF to Fuel

How much A.T.F. should be added to a Tank of Gas for Street use ?

Short of using something really harsh for fuel (like nitromethane or some pure alcohol), why would you want to do it at all? :confused:

To help lube the Turbo !

I would suggest you NOT do that.

First, the turbine wheel needs no lube, and sending fluids into the turbo could have devastating effects. The turbo spins VERY fast, and putting anything in its airstream could destroy the turbine wheel or damage it.

Secondly, it would never get to the turbo anyway! The 84-87 + 89 cars are fuel injected, and the injection takes place past the turbo.

The earlier "hot-air" cars are carburated and its a "draw through" system. I suppose your scheme might work with them. But I wouldn't suggest it.
