Is Shell the only gas station that haave 93 Octane? Or is there any other gas station that carries 93 Octane?

Sti owner's manual says use 93 Octane, so i'm going to try to keep that. but I haven't seen any 93 Octane around except at shell.

Where are you? This all changes from state-to-state.

Around here, I find 93 at BP, Marathon, & Citgo. I think Sunoco & Union 76, too...?

Every gas station here has it, some with NO ethanol.

I can even get 110 octane leaded if I want.

Most gas stations that are at higher altitude sell lower octane gas so that can affect whether or not they have 93. At higher altitudes you need less octane due to thinner air. Thinner air = less compression on normally aspirated cars = lower octane requirement.

In fact the Jet stations there used to sell 100+ petrol. I think up to about 104.

Public Service Announcement: You might not want to put in higher octane than your car is tuned for (>93).

Kroger, WalMart, Giant Eagle, Speedway, etc. Virtually every gas station in central Ohio that I've seen has 93.

Yeah...every major gas station here has 93 octane. We have some gas stations around here that has 110. Some even higher around the race tracks pure racing fuel for gas dragsters and Nascar.

Every gas station I've been to has carried 93 except once I was on a trip heading towards Chicago and had to buy 89.

Most cars that have 93 recommended are usually okay for 92 (92 is the max in Cali I believe)
