    I stopped at the Sunoco on the way to the track, but the best they had was 93

    I buy my race fuel at a local Sunoco Station for under $7 a gallon for either 100 or 110.

    Chris was dealing 104 octane out of the back of his trailer, like a Horsepower crack dealer.

    That will be cured tomorrow, the Xcal3 gets an added race tune tomorrow, with the ability to add more timing.

    Now that I think about it.
    Why in the hell did I put 104 octane in the car, when I already had Meth injection and that increases octane already.
