Race fuel pros: If you are tuned for it, especially with forced induction, you can run more aggressive timing and not get deto
Cons: no gains for stock or nearly stock cars, expensive, limited availability

i would reccomend you using it only if your car is built or highly modded

My buddy ran some 100 through his SRT-4 un tuned and it was def more responsive and seemed to pull harder but it wasn't worth the $6.75 a gallon for it. The Sunoco by the skatepark I go to has 100 un leaded and 110 leaded(I think they still have this).
