W of Denver there isnt many places! I fill up at Hill Petroleum in Arvada (Ralston and Wadsworth) with GT100 at the pump. Half a tank of that with 91 gives great results!<p>Plus I figure if I fill up again when I get to half a tank I will still be pushing close to 93. Limits how many times I have to travel out that way for more 100 octane. I also take a small gas can to fill up just in case I need a gallon or two at home. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Take a look at <A HREF="http://www.racegas.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.racegas.com</A> and see if they have any GT100 stations near you!<p><br>
Hill Petroleum is great for race fuel because you can pay at the pump, and they "only" charge $5.25 per gallon.<p>The problem is that they don't offer 91 octane, and they charge high prices for the 90, so it mandates a SECOND fuel stop to top up the tank <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Definitely worth it though! Nothing I hate more than feeling the ECU retard the boost & timing while climbing a hill or accelerating on the highway.
Just curious since this topic was brought up about racing fuel availability. You can buy nearly everything online and have it delivered to your door, I wonder if there's a source for racing gasoline and whether a consumer can order directly, if he pays the appropriate fuel taxes. I don't need it myself, having plenty of 100 RON within 20 minutes of here, but some of you remote guys might be interested.

Re: Why I smiled Monday while driving my R (vizwiz)
Yeah, paying $3.11 right now for 91 at conoco. So the 100 octane at $5.25 aint so bad. <p>Like I said, I dont mind stopping for gas to top off, I have station a mile from my house. Plus topping off again at 1/2 tank gives me another week or so of fun driving. <p>I would love to get gas delivered to me but I have no place to put it. Having a drum of gas outside would look a tad ghetto IMO, not to mention potentially dangerous. I tried small gallons of toluene before, that got too messy for my tastes. I find it better to just visit the pump!<p><br>
