Re: Why I smiled Monday while driving my R (Hi Alt R)

Any wind? Last time I was in Wyoming it was blowing like crazy! I used to drive from Steamboat, Colorado to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, but I was in a 1987 Honda Civic. I wish I had my R back then.

Re: (Hi Alt R)

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>

Re: (hyperdyne)

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.

Re: (02s60t5)

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>
