Smile 100+ Octane Fuel

Several Sources

The airport has 100 Octane Av Gas with no restrictions, you just need to find someone to sell you some. I paid $3/4 a gallon last year.

Sunoco Fuel Dealers can sell Racing Fuel which is 130/140 Octane in 55 gal drums at $8/10 a gallon they will usually only sell a full drum.

Take a 5 gal can to a national level car race, either drags or round and round. Go to the fuel truck with your can and buy it off the truck.

I used to see lots of melted pistons with the 130/140 octane fuel from folks running stock engines.

This is what I use to find stations:

The real question, is what have you done to your motor where it would be able to take advantage of race gas?

My question is, why do you need such a high octane gas? Will you actually see a benefit from it as compared to normal (91-93 octane) premium gas?

A lot of race tracks sells race gas. Sometimes they will sell to public w/ fuel cans. Find a local track and call them.

That's how much real race gas cost at the track pumps. The Sunoco GT100 stuff is not real race gas... just un-leaded gas with a small O2 additive.

You need to decide what you're looking for. Race gas comes in hundreds of different variations depending on what you're running and in what application.

If you just want high octane in your street car, then go w/ GT100. If you're looking for real race gas: which is almost always 'off road only', then it's expensive.

I would not use av gas. It has a different specific gravity and is really not intended to operate at sealevel.

they are local to you and me, and can even deliver to your house.

A lot of performance shops carry them as well, ask around a few of the shops.

the link in my sig for the octane calculator is also a site for shipping race gas. the calculator comes in handy as well.
