    Just wondering what kind of results people have been getting using octane?
    Stand alone or combo w/ something else? thanks

    I use it, but only as a spike for an occasional quick knockdown. I find that it helps with some products that are not even labeled for some certain things, but kill subsequently. Eliminate LO for instance, does a decent job on wild violet, especially when mixed with Octane. A decent spreader/sticker makes a big difference on these also, of course.

    i've been using quicksilver as a additive with 3-way, octane is a bit cheaper, might have to try it out next runaround:)

    What I have found is that the Octane takes 24-48 hrs to work whereas the quicksilver usually would work in less than 12 hrs. At a 1/3 of the price of quicksilver, it is a great addition, especially in the heat of the summer when weeds don't want to suck up your 2,4-d based broadleaf herbs alone.

    I do not use it as a stand alone but I prefer Octane over Quick. I have seen much better results with all my chemcials since I made the switch. My quicksilver is used for my round up tanks now.
