Yeha, the one off the Market St. exit is the onl place that I have ever seen it for sale, but I thought it was 100. We have a place here thatsells motorcycles and stuff that would get us 114 for my buddies old drag civic. But at $7/gallon (then), we only bought it for the track.

Re: Octane 100 (mikeyredk2)

Anything in the 110+ range is likely to be leaded. Usually not dispensed at the pump and has no business in your car unless you like emissions systems repairs. <p>Fine for non-catalytic two-strokes but willl destroy your engine/catalytic converter.

Re: Octane 100 (mikeyredk2)

You could try contacting VP Racing Fuel. Here is a link to the contact page. They suggest emailing or calling the regional distributor to find a place in your area:<br><A HREF="http://www.vpracingfuels.com/dist.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.vpracingfuels.com/dist.html</A>#<p>I'm using their fully street legal 100 octane unleaded, and quite happy with the results (5-gal 100 mixed with approx 10-gal 91). Cost, here anyway, is $5.79/gal.

Re: Octane 100 (minorthr)

OK according to the accounting dept that handles gas there is no Company owned and operated location in Pa, NJ or Del that sales racing fuel. There could be a franchise that does but thats a different department in another building.

I am way over paying for 100 octane gas... I am going to find a source for Toluene and be done with it. Toluene is ~114 R+M/2 so you need much less than race gas. 2 Gallons of Toluene mixed with 16 gallons of 91 octane yeilds 93.5.

OK, went to the local paint joint, I ask; "Do you have Toluene?" First response from the nice Mexican gentleman is "No!" I say, "C'mon, all paint places have Toluene, it is spelled T-o-l-u-e-n-e". OK let me check in the back. "Yeah, we have 1 gallon left, see how old the can is? We never sell this stuff!". Well turns out it comes to about $8/gallon.<p>I am officially done with running ragged looking for race gas at either $7.89 or $8.59 a gallon which is what the 2 closest places to me charge. 2 Gallons of Toluene per tank is equal to 5 gallons of 100 octane race fuel... doesn't take a genious to figure out which is easier and less expensive. <p>They are ordering 20 gallons for me <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Maybe you're saving money you "genious" Wile E. Coyote you. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Careful you don't get yourself flagged. Toluene is on a DEA watch list since it is used in Meth. production. Also it's a big-time cancer agent. Be safe around it.<p>Plus (FWIW):<p><I>Adding toluene to pump gas (which may, depending on the octane of the<br>pump gas, already have a fair amount of toluene in it) can increase<br>octane. But, increased proportions of toluene, also, slow burn speed<br>significantly (to the point that a fair amt. of the fuel burns in the<br>exhaust after the exh. valve closes...which is ok if you like fire out<br>your exhaust and melted cats). With a high-rpm engine, slow burning fuel<br>is exactly what you don't want. In fact, some racing gasoline suppliers<br>sell special "fast-burn" gasolines for very high rpm drag race<br>applications (Pro Stock for example). Increased toluene also changes the<br>specific-gravity of the gasoline enough that the AFR needs to be<br>recalibrated at WOT. This is a pain because, if you recalibrate for<br>toluene-spiked gas, and then, if you go back to regular pump gas, the<br>engine runs lean. Want more? The addition of toluene is governed by the<br>"law of diminishing returns", ie: if you add toluene to a blend of pump<br>gasoline which already has a lot in it, the octane increase is less than<br>if you add it to a blend of gas (say 87-oct unleaded "regular") which has<br>a lower percentage of toluene.</I>
