Thanks will do Tom, i like to be safe. I wish we had 93 oct. most stations around town are 91 only, one or two carry 92 oct. sadly.
i did find a small parts store last year that carries 110 in the back.

As i recall 110 is avgas (airplane fuel) which is leaded. Id ask before using it

never run avgas, it'll screw up your car. i run a 50/50 mix of 92 pump and a VP (may be another brand) leaded 110 race fuel. you will wear out your O2 sensor faster but they aren't that much to replace once a year Tom said it was ok to use.

OH i only run this on race days for about a year & half now.

I think the leaded fuel screws up the Catalytic mostly.. The sensors too.. but mostly the catalytic.

Sounds good to me! I've been on the track with my daily driver.. I love it, I just needed more power! getting passed by a Honduh Fit is NOT okay with me..

They sell race gas out at Miller so i'll probably fill up out there.

I got passed by a Honda Fit too.. He was gutted, caged, turboed, and had slicks.. I wasn't too bummed that he was only 2 seconds a lap faster than I was.
