There's a Citgo on Irving Park off of York Rd. by the airport (in Bensenville) that has 100 oct. unleaded

You'll notice it a bit... more if you have a tune... even more if you have a race gas tune.

Yeah, it's $6.00 a gallon too. It doesn't say the octane on there, but it's called GT1 gas I think...?

I believe once you go over 100 oct., it's mostly leaded racing gas which requires a catless system.

Don't quote me on the name since it's been a while. I just remember having a hell of a time driving around the gas station looking for it, lol.

In Naperville on 59 at 95th, the Pilot, or maybe it's a Gas City, has at least 100 from March to October. It's Kerosene during the winter.
