93 Octane in Maine

Finally found 93 octane in Maine! Google maps doesn't show it, but the address is 205 Brighton Ave Portland,ME 04103. It's a gulf gas station, but not cumberland farms.

Are there any other gas stations that sell 93 in Maine?

That is the only one in Portland, as far as I know. I buy gas for my FIAT Abarth there. I bought 93 in Bangor last summer.

I wonder where they are getting their gas from, as from what I have been told by a friend in that business the reason that every place only sells 91 octane is that is all the terminal in South Portland supplies. And they supply just about every gas station in Southern Maine regardless of brand.

I just found a thread on wrx forums earlier that says that gulf station's 93 is rated higher than 91 but lower than 93. But the owner of the station claimed the tool was not calibrated right or sth.

I also heard Shell in Wells has v-power 93.

1054 SANFORD RD, WELLS, MAINE, 04090

It's around 30 miles to me. Gotta check it out sometime...

Had no idea 93 octane is that rare in Maine. I guess I'm spoiled down in RI.

Maine is adapting some CA laws, that's also why you can't buy certain bmw engines in Maine, only if you're buying a new car though. You can still buy any used one.
