By chance, Avgas?

Does anyone here buy aviation fuel for any reason? My easy source is too far away now. Don't expect anyone to, but just in case

And no I don't mean Jet A lol.

Not jet A? I am in the fuel biz, I might be able to get you what you need if you are more specific. We also have Aeroshell lubricants (aviation). Let me know.

110LL or really anything like it. Is there any other lower octane fuel even around these days?

Avgas is 100LL

Has lead, so will screw up your cat and O2 sensor.

I use it for my motorcycle. Its a bit behind on the times, being carbed and all. That's actually the reason aviation gas can be ideal, normal highway gas suucckkkss for it, my carbs could only be varnished by Thompson's Pretty much the same happens to my carbs as what happens to a light aircraft motor on 87. Except 50x faster :/

Fuel stabilizer + 93 octane is currently ≈ aviation fuel. (in price that is)

Yes I'm very well aware of that. Its the upside of a bike sold in 3rd world countries. It can run on leaded or unleaded. It was not, however, designed to run on anything with Ethanol. So damed if I do, damned if I dont.
