I've been using Kwik Trip for a long time. I like the fact that they're open 24 hrs, typically have cleaner bathrooms than other places and have a good assortment of snacks and drinks. Also they are one of the few stations in Mankato that offer 92 octane, most others only have 91(even the Shells). I dont think that there is a station without the blend in the area.
I think that msra.com has a PDF of stations that sell the non-ox gas.

94 octane won't benefit your L36 one bit. In fact, not only are you throwing money in the tank for no benefit, that high of an octane rating may actually be hurting you in performance.

There is no more POWER in higher octane. It'* simply harder to ignite.

Bandit, these days the octane ratings mean nothing. Some are lower than advertised, others are higher. Take, for instance, Shell V-Power. Although it'* 93 Octane, when tested, it'* more like 95 octane.
