    I was at the gas station yesterday and noticed they had 110 Octane. I think it was leaded, but I could be wrong. Could this stuff be used in a snowmobile without blowing it up? If so is it worth it?

    Can be used if your built for it, other than that it is a waste.

    it's only good if you have done something to raise compression. it wouldn't hurt if you used it, but it wouldn't really do any good and it wouldn't be worth it.

    110 race gas if for high compression motors like was stated already. yes, it does have lead in it.
    it will do nothing for you running it in a stock motor other than drain your wallet at $5/gallon.

    you will actually loose power running race fuel in an engine not built for it.

    hes right something to do with the fact that higher octane has a higher detonation point so its harder to burn the fuel..... i know what im talking about just not good with words.....or so i tell myself

    The reason that it will hurt performance is because the higher octane will burn slower and cooler than the fuel that your sled calls for.
    If you were to mill the heads, port it, and advance your timing, then you would need it, but until you mod your machine, don't bother as it will make you run way too rich and waiste lots of extra $$ in the process.

    ^This is 100% untrue^.
    The only engine that knows how much octane the fuel has is the one that does not have enough.
    snoeproe said it like it is, all it will do for your stock engine sled is drain your wallet.
