Post Colorado Octane Petition

All,

Channel KOAA in Colorado Springs has an online Octane Petition regarding gas quality and prices. It appears that CO residents are being forced to pay more for inferior gas.
For all the information and to sign the
petition, please follow this link:

Regards,
Stacey

I agree and all that we pay the same for our grades of gas here that others do around the country, but we start two points lower. The reason is that at altitude you don't need the better gas because, since there's less oxygen up here it takes more to get detonation, and the grade of gas is based on its resistance to knock. Meaning: a car that's supposed to run on premium at sea level should be buying 93, while at altitude 91 will work just as well...that said, I go to a station in Parker to fill up with the magic 93.5 for my RS-T (for the same price as 91 at most places)

Yeah, I have noticed this too.... Our gas should be cheaper then, right?

Yeah true about the altitude but it should be cheaper though...

Say where exactly is that station in Parker anyway, just in case I'm ever in that part of town. I've become a bit of a gas snob myself. Rex gets only 93 octane from a little station on 287. It's the 'Kwik Korner' right at the high speed bend that heads toward Berthoud North of Longmont.

They can't spell but they've got the right octane! Usually the same price as everyone else's super too...

Cheers!

I heard there was a station on Parker road too which sells the higher octane sh**. Not a bad idea.

So where is the place in Parker?

Hey what are u guys paying for gas out there. I know around here, in CT the prices are damn near breaking my bank account. And of course I am not the slowest driver around, so my car isn't getting the 28 miles to the gallon that its supposed to be getting. I was just wondering.

Well the 93 stuff I seek out has been pretty consistent at $1.99/gal for a couple weeks. Every other station around (and I do mean EVERY) sells the 91 as super for around the same price.

How about you guys out east, what's gas like there now?

There is one place with 93 octane in the springs area, I am told, but I only have been told the general vicnity and it is about a 30-40 mile drive round trip to get there. The money I save by getting 91 just down the street pays for the octane booster I sometimes use when I am feeling frisky with the bost controller.

Rexwell,

Where is this Kwik Korner? I have never tried anything more than 91 in my RS-T and have always wanted to. Its on 287 North of Longmont?

Anyone else know of any stations in Boulder County that have better than 91?

Mike,

There used to be a station in Boulder off of South Boulder Road. I think they stopped selling it sometime last year. It may be worth checking into.

Rexwell - Thanks! I'll definitely head out there for the next tank.

Brian - Yeah, it used to be the PDQ. But they stopped carrying it just as I began turning up the boost on my RS-T to interesting levels.

To get to the Petro Stop on Parker road, take 225 to Parker road, exit going south, go 2 miles or so, and it's on your right.

Mike,

To get to Kwik Korner take 287 North out of Longmont. Not too far after it narrows down to one lane, the road will start to head east. The station is on your left hand side in the middle of that bend. If you start heading straight east you've passed it.

Careful shooting into the station though, there turn has a little bit of a bank and I scraped the bottom of the rex driving over it...kinda wished I had the diff protector then but all's well.

Thanks for the Parker directions Dave! Hey was that you who took me and my buddy Theo for a spin in your car at JCSports a couple months back? Nice ride!! Have you spanked a rex yet?

Cheers!
