Default Oxygenated Fuels

Normally I run non-oxygenated Sunoco GTX (98 octane) in my Clubsport. Would there be any deleterious effects if I were to run an oxygenated fuel, such as Sunoco 260 GT (100 octane, 3.7% oxygen)? I have not checked with the distributor yet, but I think 260 GT is marginally cheaper.

Thanks in advance.

Nope. You will find car runs better. Many series outlaw Oxygenated, where as IMSA GT3 requires VP100 oxygenated.

Thanks for your response. Looked into it a little bit and it seems one of oxygenated benefits is lower emissions. In a carbureted engine, with a change in jets to allow more fuel to burn, an increase in power is expected. Not sure about fuel injected engines based on what I read, but all the manufacturers approve oxygenated fuels and it happens to be about 62 cents a gallon cheaper.
