I was going to suggest the Amoco @ 32nd & Wadsworth, but I noticed it on the top of the link that phast had sent. They have the Sunoco 100 about $3/gal. I am going to fill up for Sunday. Otherwise you might try to get some at Jeff Co Airport.

god i just realized colorado sucks for gas, every station back in NJ had 93+ octane, and there was no such thing as 85 in NJ either, 87 was minimum. Whats the deal with that?

So what are the benefits of going with 100 octane gas?

smskier:

more altitude = less oxgen = less explosive fuel mix anyway

That's why we have lower octane gas, because that octane is not needed as much.

Or so the oil companies claim..

Higher octane fuels burn cooler/slower than pump gas. You can run more boost and more timing advance before you hit the detonation threshold.

There is a limit to how much octane you shold run. If the octane is too high, you might actually loose performance as the sombustion slows down and gets too cool.

Default cheaper to buy it off track

It's cheaper to buy it off track.
The GT 100 at 32nd Wads is 3.55 / gal
I think the stuff at Bandi is close to 4.00 a gallon.
