I didn't mean to indicate that it was in the wrong forum, I just thought maybe you were thinking about alcohol and that is why you posted here. :)

If you buy enough race gas you could have paid for an alcohol kit. As far as help with the alcohol, that is what the board is for and there are many knowledgeable people running alcohol that would be glad to help you.

I run an alkycontrol.com kit, and then run 87 octane.
I basically just use the higher octane the alky offers, just when I need it.

You should look at the alky kit instead of having to worry about finding race gas. It is a very straight through install and not that expensive compared to other upgrades. I did the install about 7-8 hours doing it after work. also just installed a BstC controller turned up the boost for the first time yesterday to about 22lbs and man she ripped like crazy and had 0 degrees of knock. See race gas you have to mix just right with reg octane, if you dont mix correctly you wont have enough octane to run the higher boost. just something to look at when you do want to go with the higher boost.

I believe there are a few Citgo's or 66's in Chicago that have 110 unleaded around the same as Gas City's price. There is a 66 in Barrington on Rt 59 that has 110 unleaded now for $4.90, up .90 cents due to summer time racers he said. :mad: :rant:

Alky is worth it, especially at $5.20 for only 100 octane.

Do the Xylene/93 octane mix.
1 gal xylene..... $9.00
+
3 gal 93.............$2.80
= 4 gal 100 octane.$17.40...or 4.35 per gal.

I get the Xylene in 5 gal pails from the Sherwin Williams make sure you get the commercial price.
But alky is good too... I have it on my other more "serious" car.
I do understand gas is expensive living up in the "Daley Dynasty".
I was up there same time last year for a few months and remember getting hammered on fuel prices.
