Arrow PDX- 93 oct by PDX Tuning?

is there any place to get 93 oct by PDX Tuning? I'll be there next week and wanted to pump it up a bit, or do they offer it there?

why would you want to get tuned on 93* when most places sell 92*

better to be safe than sorry, IMO

^^^ Yep

If you plan to consistently keep your in-tank octane levels above 92, you can ask them to tune aggressively on straight 92 if that's the worst gas you ever plan on running. Then whenever you raise octane, you'll be raising safety but shouldn't be in too much danger if kept on straight 92.

Why not? When I had to goto Richland, I picked up 12 gallons of E85 and drove it back to Seattle so I could try it in my 2.5RS. I had no problems, but I got some good non-vented fuel cans.

92 octane here in Oregon is typically not the same as 92 some place else. Same goes for 93. Actually 92 octane in Oregon is very good fuel and will tune as good as 93 from Idaho, maybe better.

If you want a really aggressive pump gas tune you should do 92 octane with Torco. Or just a straight race gas map. This way you can run the right fuel and additive or straight race gas for the tune
