Default Bones break in fuel?

Has anyone used this for breaking in a new engine?

They claim it only takes a quart of it for break instead of the usual gallon or so.

I'm just wondering what would make it effective. They say don't keep running it after 1 quart or you'll end up with a blown motor. So is it something other than just fuel with extra high % oil?

There is something in it that speeds up the breakin process. I have used it on 6 engines so far and it does speed up the break in. 1 qt and the engine is ready to hit the track. I usually don't put a full race tune on it till the metal pinch is gone but this stuff works well. I haven't seen any other issues/ complications from using it, some will say different but that's my experience.

There was some discussion about it in the Bones Brew thread, and Bones mentioned the break-in fuel is higher in ash content.

Nice... I picked up a quart as well along with a case of 30/10. Thinking I should have went with 8%, but maybe next time. I'm going to try it out on either my p5 or x5 that I have sitting here.

Byron's was getting too expensive. The shipping charge for a 4 gal case is ridiculous and ends up costing 10 bucks more per gallon... making the switch was kind of a no brainer!
