For those in CA (and anywhere else), here's a link to Sunoco/76 stations that carry 100 octane fuel. This is really cool, considering we can only get 91 in CA. I went to the Redwood City location this afternoon for 5 gallons! <p><A HREF="http://www.sunocoinc.com/site/Consumer/RaceFuels/260GT100Locations" TARGET="_blank">http://www.sunocoinc.com/site/...tions</A>/

VP Racing Fuels is another source of 100 octane unleaded. That's what is available in my neighborhood. They don't have a list of end dealers on the web, but they say to contact the rep in your region.<p><A HREF="http://www.vpracingfuels.com/dist.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.vpracingfuels.com/dist.html</A>

Re: 100 octane fuel for CA folks (mgotts)

I posted a list of 100 octane service stations in Southern California. I am sure a search will bring it up. I am lucky to have two 76 stations that have 100 octane each a few miles from home and work.

Re: 100 octane fuel for CA folks (Token Blk Guy)

It was $4.89/gal. Redwood City is more convenient to work, not home. I won't be going that often. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Here's steamboatsig's link: <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=44898" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=44898</A> I called a few places from the list and it appears to be going for around $5.99 a gallon.

Re:

my experience with the Sonoco Race Fuel locator has been that you have to check the pump to make sure it's what it's supposed to be. when i got to the station there was leaded fuel in the pumped marked with the unlead brand, and a leaded fuel sticker in a non-obvious place. just be carefull.

also hit/surf the STi/EVO sites. those guys are high octane junkies like us.<p>my neighbor has an EVO and turned me onto the local 100 octane pump site. he too said his car runs TONS better on high octane and lousy on 91. heat sucks power from his car too....it's not just us... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>
