Angry DSM, Iowa: Where is the 93 octane hiding?!

WHERE? I found 92 at Casey's on 1st street in Ankeny but I can't find 93.

Hm, yeah I'm not sure I've seen 93 anywhere either. Heck some gas stations I've stopped at only had 87 and 89! 92 might be the closest you will find, think its kind of a regional thing

I seen on midiowacamaroclub.com someone posted scs fabricating in ankeny is selling 100 octane, but it is around $6.25 per gallon you could always add couple gallons per tank to increase.
I also have only found 92 at some casey's not all stations have premium

I need to join that club... and $6.25 for 100 is way too high, no way I'm paying that.

I didn't know a Camaro would run on that "corn oil" you guys grow and burn out on the flatlands? So just get the highest octane you can get and add a can/bottle of octane booster to it....problem solved Sorry, I don't have any cheese for your Whine......

I'm hoping you're just being sarcastic or funny here... the ethanol is in everything here, it's hard for us to get away from. No fault of our own, it's the damn government... even the 92 I've found is 10% Ethanol so I'm sure it's like running 90 or 91... I haven't tried adding octane yet but I'll give it a shot at the next fill.

Casey's is the only station I've found that has the 92 octane.
There is one on Hickman, before Waukee. The place mentioned
before in Ankney just started carrying
unleaded racing fuel,not sure of the price.
Be careful of octane boosters,if you use them alot they will
mess up your O2 sensors over time. If your doing mods and it
doesn't matter about your O2's go for it, the smell is awesome!

i found a station that has 93 octane. its in muscatine at a shell station. its on highway 61 at the turn for fruitland. the draw back to it is that it has 10 % ethanol. i am going to try it out when i get my car back out. 30 mile drive but what the hell be nice to get her out for a drive.

The highest i can find around here is 92 also. I have to drive 8 miles to the truck stop to get it but only run Shell V-Power in my car.
