Default Fuel Grade

Would there be something definantly wrong with filling up with like a 75/25 mix of 93 and 110 in SSEi'*? I've never done it, so if it'* bad don't scould me because I'M INNOCENT hehe. Just a curious question because 110 is sold at some pumps here in Lakeville. I have heard of people mixing fuel grades and just wondering what other opinons are on this issue?

You can get 110 octane? I thought 100 was the usual "racing" gas available. I think Sunoco has that at some of their stations.

As long as it is unleaded, it would probably be ok. I wouldn't go for too high of a percentage because it may not have the proper additives for automobile use, if it is meant for aircraft or something.

I believe I read that the Sunoco is street legal. You might want to read about that on their web site.

99% of all 110 race gas available on the street is LEADED. Don't do it! That'* why they say for offroad use only.

I'm pretty sure its unleaded. I'm assuming you're talking about the pump at McStop on co. 70 and 35. My friend uses the 110 from that station on his snowmobile and it takes unleaded fuel only.

UPDATE: It seems I now have an appointment with these guys to pick up 19 litres in Ottawa (100 miles away) on Friday night

Yes fantastic that would be the one. I thought it would be unleaded but I'm not sure. Assuming that it is for sure....Would something like this mix be ok for a car? Any benefit? Or would I just be wasting 3 something a gallon on 110?

It would be a great investment at the track with a smaller pulley, a PCM and slicks
