Higher octane race fuels don't actually make more power themselves. Higher octane fuels are more "stable" under high compression. If you have a high compression piston, you'd NEED a higher octane fuel. If you were to run a lower octane fuel in a high comp motor, the fuel could pre-detonate under compression.

I too love the smell of race fuels... I might just buy some of the fuel additives in the post above... just for shits and giggles.

You can get any kind of race fuel from VP (industry standard).... OR... You might be able to get high octane aviation fuel from a local airport.

I think that you would be wasting your money on anything more than 93 or 94. You'd be better off getting an additive. You wont really see a difference IMO, besides an extra couple of bucks a gallon. All depends on what you want. I don't think it'd hurt the engine or anything, just that the engine wont be using the gas to its' full potential.

If you check the price of VPs VPR fuel, you'll find that it's $68.30 for 5 gallons... or $13.66 per gallon.
