No 93 Octane in California

Ok guys. The highest Octane sold at all Gas Stations in California apparently is 91 Octane.
There are a few that do sell 100 Octane.
My question is: If I were to put 100 Octane in my car, how many gallons should I put to get a 93 Octane Rating (or is that even possible)?
Thank you in advance.

Reason for 91 in Cali. altitude.

You DO NOT NEED anything higher than 91 octane. The cost and use is a waste and you WILL NOT see any performance improvement.
