I am planning a trip to KY this weekend, and this got me thinking. I know there are some places that don't have 93 octane (NYC and LA...I think). Is there a website or resource that lists these 93 octane restricted areas? Just curious.

Thanks in advance.
Don't know where you are going in KY, but I live in Northern KY up by Cincinnati and 93 is at most gas stations, Sunoco or BP is usually what I use.

06 Stang GT, Yeah I got stuff! Check out my profile for the low down.

Hey hemi,
Nope, just the 1 @ 93 tune. When I bought my Predator from Steeda, that had 3 tunes. I sold that CAI unit tuner.

I know of one place in San Diego that sell 100+ octane... but you can't pump it directly into a car. And it's not very close to where I work/live, so it's inconvenient for me. Fortunately, one of the tracks I go to sells all sorts of racing fuel. It's not cheap ($7.75/gal for 110 octane) ... but it's convenient!

I used to buy race gas at a motorcycle shop, but all they carried was leaded fuel, and it was about $45 for a 5-gal can. If anyone goes that route, make sure you don't get leaded fuel if you still have cats on the car.

And I agree on the caution about octane boosters. The only one that seems to be OK is the Torco concentrate (which really isn't a booster anyway).
