High Octane Fuel

Anyone know where I can get 100 Octane or better fuel pumped into a car in the L.A. or Orange County area of Southern CA?

Joe

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

Cool

Joe,

I'll need to verify this, but a 76 station in Covina/West Covina used to sell it right off the 10 fwy and Citrus exit ...

Thanks,

Okay, if you go there, it's located just South of the 10 on Citrus (less than 1/2 a block), ... you can't miss it.

Thanks, Ruben. I just called and verified that they sell it. $6.94 per gallon for 105 octane. Ouch.

Would it work and be cheaper to buy an octane boost additive?

I'm told that toluline makes a good octane booster. Anyone heard of that? It's new to me.

Thanks, everyone. I just found a place close to where I live that sells 105 octane.

It's a 76 station on La Paz near the 5 freeway. Same price: $6.94 per gallon.

Cool, have fun with the 105 ... should allow you to tweak things a little to make you go faster ...

Hey Joe, are you going to race your CS with the 105 in it? or are you going to dyno tune? What are you using that 105 octane for? if you race it, share the results! :)

I was looking for someone I know that just bought a Boss 302. The car has 11:1 compression, so he needs high octane gas. No plans to race for me. I have been thinking about dyno tuning my CS, though.
