so about that 100 ocatane

we had a fabled Shell station that had that at the pump in town
of course, few who found it told of it's whereabouts
if you needed it bad enough the local track had it
VP fuel is made near San Antonio
the only local dragstrip has a VP station at the end of the return road
$4.oo a gallon for 103 that was cat-safe (meow?)
higher octane mixes are leaded fuel and will clog a catalytic converter

Yeah, they are just floating around. Gas is estimated to be at 5 dollars withing the next ten years. Combination of economies are growing globally increasing crude oil demand, being over our world oil resources peak, American demand is increasing, and etc.

Yeah that's just temporary. Gas was also .99 cents four years ago and look where it's at now. I think Saudia Arabia actually produced more oil to help calm the prices down, I forgot which country that was talking about doing that. It's the old law of supply and demand. They produced more to help cool the prices, but eventually the supply won't keep up with the demand once again and back to the old prices.

I forgot some of the details since it has been awhile since I researched it and I am too lazy to look it up again.
This is only true if the engine has not been designed for a lower octane gasoline. All current Toyota engines are designed to run best on 87, so as long as you are using a quality fuel, you will not have any issues. You can use the higher priced, higher octane if you want, and nothing bad will happen, but you will not have any benefits and will spend more money. Then again, sometimes you cannot put a price on peace of mind.

Don't forget, higher octane race gas is no good for your 02 sensor either. Plain ol' regular unleaded is fine. I buy Techron additive from Costco(hella deal). Add that to a tank one a month or so.

I've run 116 in my Gaylant before so I can turn the boost way up. Of course, it has 3" non-cat exhaust...
