110 leaded or unleaded? I run the sunoco 112 leaded blue stuff in my race car and alot of track sell it cus its the "official nascar fuel".

i'd call your closest nascar track or even try road atlanta and find out who thier supplier is.

Is there a 76 distributor close to Chattanooga ? Going to Eastman is quite a drive.

Does anyone know what this should cost. Ive been running 100 lowlead at $2.89/gal. But some one told me they were buying c-112 for the same price if they bought 6or more drums.Sounds to good to be true, but would be nice.

Gone thru this many times, found out it is still cheaper to buy Aviation fuel rather than Mixing 110 or c12 half & half with low octane pump gas. My bulk price on 110 is $ 5.00 per gallon @ 54 gallon drum. C12 is $5.50 per gallon. and I am a VP distributor. Only problem is I am in north fla. but I can ship it from the Ft.Lauderdale headquaters to your door. We take all major credit cards....... 850 926 6272

If I were you I'd catch a fuel truck driver that is at a gas station close to you, a lot of times they can add you to their route.... I know they added my dad to the route. You need to check the gas station by the nearest race track, and don't forget that a lot of times airports have a fuel supply truck that carries all the expensive stuff. Dad got the guy that delivers to the local airport to stop by the farm on his way out... you can run leaded fuel on offroad stuff.

Beaware that aviation fuel is low in hydrocarbons and is intended for low rpm high altitude aircraft eng's . You may want to add a lubricant (marvel,2cycle,methonal lube etc..)to the av gas.Operating at sea level will be different.
