Default No Race Gas @76 Alamden/Foxworthy

Just so no one else makes a fruitless trip, the 76 station is currently out of race gas. The attendant there did not know when they were getting more. The number for the station is (408) 978-5650, so call before making the trip.

Sorry about the scare. There is a place up in San Lorenzo that sells race gas, including 100 and 104. The 100 is like $4.30/gal and the 104 is like $5.xx/gal. Both octanes are R+M/2.

The 76 by Almaden and Foxworthy is less than 5 minutes away from my house.

I've never bought race gas before... how does it work? Do you get it at a special pump, or do they give you a container full of race gas? Just curious.

I thought it was just a container full of octane 91's with a piece of masking tape that says "RACE GAS!"... I didn't know they actually put octane booster in it!

[sarcasmdetectorbroken]is this really how it works? for $60+ bucks for a tank of octane booster i'd rather go to kragens... if this isn't how it works, which 76's in san jose do have it?[/sarcasmdetectorbroken]

It's the corner pump, it has a different spigot. It says RACE GAS. Almaden Expressway and Foxworthy.

It's Unocal (or is Union?) 76 100 octane race gas. The unocal website can give you specifics. It ain't cheap feces, but it works great straight if you run high boost, or blended to raise the octance of the 91 stuff they are now selling.

Default Arco 101/Moffet or 237 76 92 still?

Anyone know if these stations still have pumps labeled 92 octane? Thanks.

negative... no 92

you can always just squirt a couple of gallons of 100 in with your 91. That's what I do.

Engine Reseach has 55 gal drums and pumps the gas from there. So you need to bring or purchase your own gas container(s). I highly doubt that they will pump directly into your tank due to possible emissions issues.

I know 100 octane gas does wonders for the wrx but are there any drawbacks? my friend said that it can burn the valves and injectors....
