Guys - I can get 106 an 109 cam 2 race gas here. I have been mixing that out of cans in with the 89 I get at the pump on the water. I have had no issues so far but was told by one person that it is a leaded gas an may not be good to run. It could cause build up on the valves and lifters ? Do that sound right ? I know the race cars runs this stuff I can image they would if it was that bad. Any input ?

Why can't Shell offer there V power without ethanol...I think if someone of the big oil companies runs with 1 pump premium with NO ethanol it would be a great marketing stratigy. Why are we forced to use the ethanol, from what I've read it has no performance qualities what so ever.

I don't think the oil companies are going to drop premium. Some of the marinas may if they have a limited number of tanks. There are too many cars and trucks that require premium for the oil companies to drop it totally.

I would'nt place any bets on that Michael our bulk fuel supplier sayz the Terminals around here are doing away 93 that use is down and village/city/govt/police are'nt filling with 93 anymore due to the xtra cost
