Just an FYI for those nearby and interested, the 76 station at San Vicente and Bundy has 100 octane $6.25 (I think thats what I paid).

If you paid $6.25 then it went down... it has been $6.79 for as long as I can remember... This is where I get my 100 as well.

Re: (nikhsub1)

$6.79 it is then. Wasn't certain about the price when I posted. I never see any "R"s in there, only rich old men in their Carrera GTs and 360's. Are there any fun curvy roads nearby you mash on? Maybe we could cruise sometime, always willing to meet a fellow car enthusiast.

Yeah if you drive a lot, you will go broke fast! I fill up twice a month... I got my car Jan 25th of this year and I only have 2500 miles on the car... I put bout 5-6 gallons in per tank (have a 5 gal gas can too) which equates to about an additional $15 per tank if you were to just use all 91.

Re: 100 Octane in Brentwood/Santa Monica (blackTT55)

100 octane unleaded is intended to be a "race gas." If you are using it for it's intended purpose, it is money well spent.<p>If not, it's a waste of money. (in my ever-so-humble opinion)<p>On edit ... I neglected to consider the California guys that can only get 91 octane. I can see how they might want to create their own House Blend.

the station near my current home is in Indio, CA. Clarks' truck stop. they cater to offroaders and sell to a lot of the moto-x guys and sand rails. they have 100 octane unleaded and 110 leaded. at the pump. <p><br>Indio is just east of Palm Springs in the so cal desert. nice and toasty...which is why I am MOVING to Temecula where it is a LOT cooler... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>but so far, no race gas at the pump ANYWHERE in the Temecula/Murrieta area. Temecula, if you don't know, is about 30-45 min north of San Diego.<br>

tbfilms,<br>im in malibu and there are plenty of fun canyons around here if you want to get a kick out of your 100 octane. Mulholland is a fun run with tons of other canyons that fork off of it which make loops possible and very easy.
