Default What ive been thinking of...

Because I didn whip about 370 horse and I put high compression parts in this thing. (69 chev I rebuilt with my dad when I was 16) I want to get a tank at my house with 94+, If you go directly to your gas plant, you can ask them to send a truck out to your house to fill the tank. a 400l tank of 94 costs 350 buxx (can) plus I think its about 50buxx for them to run it out to your house

We get the 94 octane at Sunoco, we also get the 100 & 104 there too. There are 2 pretty close to us, 1 about 8 miles away 1 way, and the other 15 miles away the other way. They are all over the place in Michigan.

highest ive seen here in sturgis is 91, but maybe i have misread some of the pumps, but theres also some gas stations i wont go to cuz the gas quality sucks. i would so much like to put 104 in my bonne....it performs well on 91 must be great on 104

That is what we buy for the track. That is what we use as race gas. We put in the 100 along with Torco when we get that, and we put in the 104 by itself, but the problem with the 104 is it is not unleaded it is low-lead, so we like to run the 100 and torco a little better. But we get no KR at all ever with the 2.6" Pulley on 104 octane, or 100 octane with torco. But it costs $3.50 a gallon, so its not for daily use.

Right...well, I don't race my Bonneville at any track, so I'l stick with the 89/91 octane.

I'll save up for my M3 before I hit any tracks
