To much octane in itself is not an issue, octane is a resistance to detonation. What does matter is using a fuel with sufficient octane and the right vaporization properties. C16 is not ideal for nitrous, it is more suited for blown and turbo engines with higher induction temps. What would be better is the right fuel for your engine and car combination. Here is a thread to check out.

Within reason, too much octane isn't a problem. It just means you're spending more than you need to.

I ran C16 in my stand alone cell and my plugs were very yellow after passes.

Switched to 113 and it went away.

This was a 11.2:1 pump gas sbc with a 200 shot.

I'd say the C16 was over octane'd...

I always thought this was a good read and made sense with the plug readings I was getting after I switched from VP NO2 to VP C-23 fuel. I went back to the NO2 blend after chasing the right plug readings and timing issues I was having and actually put more timing back in the motor on the NO2 blend than I had in it with the C-23.
