Just want to know what u guys are running for gas on the daily. I always run on 93, its a little expensive but its worth the performance. Ive seen people run ethanol with the flex fuel kit but i dont know if ethanol is good for daily use or just for racing nights.

You get 93 octane that has no ethanol? Where do you live? I'm moving there.

Blend of 93 and just a bit of E85 - precise measurement requires a fuel sensor or measuring the ethanol level of your 93 fuel (typically @10% ethanol) and E85 (wild swings from season to season and station to station - @ 60-80% ethanol)

We've got non ethanol 93 here in the Nashville area, but it's pretty pricey. Thats what I run in my Z06. And another Shell station down the road has 2 pumps of 110 octane available.

110 on tap - that would be something - you say non-ethanol 93 is spendy; I imagine the 110 is close to $4 a gallon.

$4 per gallon? 91 octane premium has already gone well past $3 around here several weeks ago. I think we will easily see $4 per gallon soon. I'm sure that 110 is higher than $4.

Our regular 93 is $3.51, last time I got non ethanol 93 it was $3.99 and that was about a month ago. I'll look at the 110 prices when I drive by today. I'm kinda curious now

So i just called as asked the shell how much their race fuel was, she said which one? I thought they had 2 pumps with 110 but they have 110 and 113. She said the 110 is $60.00 per gallon...I said "sixteen?" she said "no $60":oops:

I honestly thought it would be between $15-20 per gallon. I didn't even ask about the 113

That can't be right

I looked into race fuel 2-3yrs ago at a local shell was $8.xx/g for 100 and like $12.xx/g for 110. Not at the pump but they got it on request in back. 92 was around $3.00/g at the time, now like $3.69/g. So assuming 100/110 has gone up. E is much cheaper, at least per gallon...
