Post High octane gas in Portland area

Does anyone know of a station selling
>92 octane nearby Portland?

I did a search in the PNW thread but there
was just a few discussions about locations
near Seattle.

Thanks,
Eric

Cool

I posted the same in the BAIC forum a couple of days ago. Try www.76.com. It's been down for the day, but should be up tomorrow.

"Trick" racing gas is available at Rose City Off-Road Center: SE 90th and Stark. At least according to some info I found.. but it may well be leaded.

If you don't run a Cat or yours is punched out, with a little effort, you can use AvGas, I believe 100 low lead. I don't recomend this unless it's for a race car that's only used on the track and not the streets......
I take a few 5 gallon cans to the airport and fill up.

Well, you can buy 104 at Race Central, but it is expensive. For my WRX (running 20psi), I use 1 gallon of Toluene per fill up, which raised the octane to about 93 or so.

Don't run the AVGas unless you want to destroy the front wideband and rear narrowband O2 Sensors, which will make your car throw codes left and right. I suppose a bit for the track day is fine, but not on a regular basis.
