Default Sweet.... 13MPG...... ROFL

So my brother and i found a place that sells 100Octane Racing fuel down the road form my work.

100oct @ $5.99 a gal.

I was low on gas on monday, so at lunch time i went down there and put in 6.3 gal. $38
I had like 3-4gal of 93 in there before so i think its about 98oct it worked out to be

So Monday drive home form work, Today drive to work and a little fun after work...

85 miles... on 6.3 gals

It was a LOT of fun though She pulls a lot better at the top of 2nd and the begging of 3rd. and overall pulls better.

So now i can get racing fuel when ever i want to have some fun. Cant do it much. Its A LOT of $ ya know lol. but it might be when im bored and want to have a fun weekend

It wouldn't damage the oxygen sensors? That is pretty cool.

Belgium $5.91
Sweden $5.80
United Kingdom $5.79

That wouldn't be the blue airplane gas would it?

If it is, your cat will be toast.

Lots of lead in it.
