pinging

My evo has been pinging even from stop lights lately , I'm thinking I should back off on the advance one digit . I'm running high grade fuel. My config is 8.5-1 kb pistons screaming eagle heads 510 s&s cam 675 high lift roller rockers techII ignition true duel exhaust vh mufflers . Any ideas or any ony had this problem ,never had it happen till last weakened . Could it be the humidity in the air out here ? We don't have that stuff in California

Couple the alcohol in the gas here with the high heat and you could easily have pinging. Here in Bell County, they are not allowed to sell anything with less than 10% alcohol.

Seeing it more and more around the state.

I rarely add anything, but a couple of ounces of Sea Foam in a tankfull will help.

I use E-Tech that I get from NAPA.

Either will help keep the injectors clean.

All the auto parts stores around here carry it now.

Don't get the Deep Creep version. That's for fogging motors.

Ethanol has a higher octane rating than gasoline, so it is unlikely to induce preignition. I'd be more inclined to believe ambient heat coupled with hot carbon on the pistons or heads.

Check your VOES too.

Techron works good too. You can also mix Berrymans B-12 with Marvel Mystery oil 50-50 to approximate Seafoam.
