Default Race Gas Prices ??

Okay, I know some of you guys gulp high octane like crazy.

What should I expect to pay for 100-104 octane race gas?
What should I expect to pay for 110 octane race gas?
What should I expect to pay for 114-118 octane race gas?

And in what quantities (up to a 55gal drum, not a tanker)...

I'm trying to determine the most cost effective way to get a 110+ octane brew, whether it entails mixing several things together or purchasing a finished product...

I must really live in BF Egypt...

All I find in pumps around here are Turbo Blue Unleaded 100, and all normal flavors of avgas. Everything else is pail or drum quantities.

around here, most are pumps. One guy is near the race track and watches you like a hawk making sure you don't fuel anything BUT 5 gallon cans however the other guy I go to allows anything you want

The only thing I can find here in Orlando at the pump is 100 octane sunoco. I run it in my R6 now and then. It seems to be a bit expensive compared to what you all are saying.. its 3.99 a gallon...

Damn...you guys are getting great prices. In NJ, I just paid 5.40 for 20 gal Sunoco 110. By the 55 gal drum, they get 5.00/gal

I'm paying $7.89/gallon for 118 Leaded (116 AKI).

I don't want to pay so much...
