race fuel... looks like it's available online for $13-15/gal for 98-104 octane

Found online a Grange co-op in Issaquah sells Cenex 92 ethanol-free with top tier labeled pumps... maybe I'll check that out this weekend

I have an Exxon card, and I get .06/gallon off, so I've been sticking with them. However, Shell used to have E0, no ethanol, in its premium or V-Power. Does it still? If so it might be worth it to try a tank.

I'm using this one:
Grange Co-Op
145 Ne Gilman Blvd, Issaquah, WA; 425-392-6469; ethanol-free CENEX 87 89 92

Might also use this one:
Snohomish Co-Op
168 Lincoln Ave, Snohomish, WA; 360-568-2104; ethanol-free UNBRANDED 87 92

This one's a maybe for me:
North Lake Marina
6201 Ne 175th St, Kenmore, WA; 425-482-9465; ethanol-free UNBRANDED 87 9

Bremerton's got one:
Pacific Pride
400 Wilkes Ave, Bremerton, WA; ethanol-free PACIFIC PRIDE 87 92

Grange in Issaquah is the only one I've confirmed so far. All came from this site and map:
https://www.pure-gas.org/extensions/...p?statecode=WA

Pretty sure the ethanol-free 92 has added 2 mpg, 3 hp, 4 mph, and 5 IQ for me... ymmv

I don't get the anti ethanol thing.. ethanol increases octane and cleans the fuel system. There should be no problems running it on any modern car.

I run e85 on my tuned turbocharged car and it makes 100 more hp over 91 octane gas because e85 is 104 octane.

FWIW after I went stage 2 I filled up with a half tank of 100 octane from sunco. Throttle response seemed a bit lagging in general but I wasn't sure...until... I filled up today with 93 from shell and throttle response was noticeably better. Assuming the bm3 tune prefers 93, or shell is just good fuel, who knows, but I am sure there was a difference. May the jokes commence.

I get 5 cents off per gallon every time I fill up with Shell and it's 20-30 cents more than Pilot or 7-11 in my area. $3 - $4.50 more is not a big deal.

I think I pay more than that a month to have people spray poison on my lawn.
