    Need 100 Octane Unleaded ASAP - close to Pgh Airport area a plus...

    I need 5-10 gallons of 100 octane unleaded gas ASAP. As close to Moon Township ( near Pgh Airport ) is a plus. Whatever info you have is appreciated - address - station name - whatever. Thanks fellas.

    If it looks good, you'll see it. If it sounds good, you'll hear it. If it's marketed right, you'll buy it. But if it's real, you'll feel it. IG: @donuttrump

    Thanks guys. Heading to the shop on Campbells Run during lunch to see if they have it.

    In the future I will probably run down to Pitt Race and fill up a few cans from the pump.

    Go figure - shop on Campbells Run doesn't carry it anymore. Hopefully the Honda shop in Moon has it - will find out tomorrow - closed on Wednesdays! Ugh!

    Thanks very much Mr. Ross. Unfortunately you are 60+ miles from me. If the local bike shop doesn't work out tomorrow I think I'll be heading to PittRace on Friday - about 35 miles and they're open until 8pm. $9.20 a gallon for 100 octane unleaded - and I'm hoping their gas is pretty fresh. Fingers crossed.

    I’m not sure what you need it for, but at 100 octane no lead I would just start keeping Torco around and make your own when you need it

    I just need this to run thru the '14. Logs show some knock sensor activity during WOT on the factory tune. Going to run 5 gallons of the 100 thru it and log again to see if the knock sensor activity goes away. Apparently the 93 octane in my area sucks balls - even Sunoco.

    Bob - where do you get the Torco and what could I expect to pay?

    Best option for Torco believe it or not is eBay directly from them ... cost depends on quantity but figure $20 a quart shipped if you buy the 6 pack of quarts.

    10 gallons of 93 @ $3.00/gallon is $30 then add $20 a quart for a total of $50 to make 10 gallons of 103 unleaded.

    the upside is that is on demand, add it when you need it. Look at a mixing chart, I suspect for all you drive it, it might be reasonable to add a quart every fill up to something like 96-97 depending on tank size.

    I think Purvis Bros in Mars has 100 octane, but that's not exactly close to you.

    Thanks Bob - that Torco sounds good to me - having it when I need it is a big plus.

    About Purvis - they don't carry 100 unleaded but can order it. But...they only order on Tuesday and it comes in on Thursday...and they only order if they have enough people wanting it. So no guarantee there.

    This is for my '14 so the 110 leaded is a no-go. Even my '66 runs unleaded which is nice. I can stock up on Torco and cover both cars.

    Are any of you guys with newer cars having issues with your local 93 being shit? I know Mark and Chris have. Mark went to E85 but that's not an option for me due to weak supply around me. What are you others doing - just running the 93 and letting the knock sensors pull timing? I doubt you all are going the Torco route on a daily basis.

    Av gas has way to much additives. My gas man had fits when I mentioned using it

    AV gas - I've used that before - airplane fuel right? I think 93 mixed with Torco is probably the same net cost? Plus as was said I think AV has other stuff in it.
