You can get 100 Oct race gas from Speedware in Redmond..

Gonna cost you though.. I think it's around $5.25 per gallon.

or you could use an Octane Booster

You can get 104 or 114 for $4.99 a gallon Trick Racing fuel in Auburn. It's a 76 station on auto row on Auburn Way I think. Not far from SIR.

The reason he might need it is for a high compression motor. I know thats why I use it.

I was wondering that, myself, Richard. Unless you are running w/ forced induction, there is absolutely no reason to run anything above 87. On the 2.5 engine, at least, your performance will actually be worse on higher octanes.

If you like, you can just send me the extra money, and I'll send you an email every day telling you that your car is running better .

I'll have to check on the various 76 gas stations to see if they have Trick Fuel.
Thanks for the info.

92 octane will retard the power on the engine. Have to run at a high octane level to get the max power.

But hey, it's not my engine!

Not quite true.. What it will do is increase the chance for detonation..

I've been running my Turbo RS on 92, quite happily for the last 21000 miles on 92 Octane.

So what engine are you requiring this " Rocket Fuel for ????

From what i have been told, the ecu will lower the power produced by the engine if the gas octane is lower than, oh cant remember the recommended rating.

btw, how does detonation sound like?
How do you know when the car starts to ping ?

The engine is a 2.0l turbo, which is sold in the US in a lower rated form.

My friend who races motorcross always got his Trick at the local Honda motorcycle dealer. I'm guessing any place that sells or services a number of dirt bikes will sell Trick. BTW he ran it diluted like 1 gal Trick/4 gals super. But ever since I can remember it was like $5/gal

Just got off the phone with Speedware Motorsports:

100 octane unleaded - $15.99/gallon
110 octane LEADED - $10.99/gallon

Anybody find cheaper race gas somewhere in Seattle?

This is a 9 year old thread...
Did you really just bump three threads trying to find "cheap" race gas?


Buck up man, ya gotta pay to play.


And yes, it is less than that at the Shell station. You can find it in another thread that you bumped.

Like I said in the other old ass thread you bumped:

I don't know. Maybe you should go back in time, like six years ago, and get it for cheaper.

Pull out your checkbook and buy a 55 gallon drum for ~$500 plus/minus.

Keep your panties on gentlemen; this thread will drop off the front page and into obscurity in no time. There is no point to crying and moaning about dragging up an old thread and posting some current, relevant information in it.

It creates less clutter to add to an existing post, no matter how old, than to create a new thread about the same topic. I searched, I found, I posted. Now the next user looking for high-octane fuel in the greater Seattle area will know that Speedware's fuel is expensive.

All you told future readers was that you were grumpy and felt the need to post useless blather on an otherwise on-topic thread.

Hell, posts 16 and 17 are hijacks of the original topic and don't add a grain of useful information!

Unless you have something to say about where to find race gas, please don't bother replying.
