I looked at Sam's on blairsferry today-no 93.
Your saying out by your old work by hwy 13?

Where is Murray's?

I was in my impala, so I only have 8 gallons in tanks-normally fill minimal gas-race weight affect-will need more soon.

Tim,

Let me know if you find something close by. I always went to Road Rangers off of C AVE and Blairsferry too. I see there is one in Hiawatha that is 91 octane with no ethanol. http://pure-gas.org/index.jsp?stateprov=IA

So did Road Rangers 93 octane have ethanol in it? Can't remember. So the gas station at Wal-Mar/Sams off Blairsferry has 93 w/ethanol?

Good luck with your race at Hawkeye Downs. Sounds like it would be a fun day, but I am working this weekend.

See you at the SCCA race today Tim.

All gas can have up to 10% ethanol in it as an additive. If it has less than ten percent it doesn't need to be labeled. The eathanol takes the place of other addatives to remove water.

I read the alachol fuel percent in my camaro and suburban with the laptop and it can vary from station to station, from 3% to 25%. This was with labled ten percent gasahol. I said something to my friend who owns the gas station in Newhall. Ends up she was getting more high alachol percentages and paying the normal price. She doesn't buy from that supplier any more.

Stay safe...

I'll follow you down if you don't care. I was thinking of following you to the Sturgis Camaro rally too if there is anywhere left to stay.

I have used the 93 (10% ethanol) from Murray's (Walmart) since day 1 of owning my SS. No signs of abnormal wear and tear.

Ryan, did it end up being that that the plug wire was off or are you still having issues?

Dennis, I may not end up going to Sturgis now.. Not due to work load but Sunday, damn near broke my left big toe. SOB is as big as a golf ball, and my toe nail half sheared loose.

So difficult to walk and cut open a shoe to let the toe have some space.

If unable to locate, then we can try to transfer reservation to you. If you found a place, then great.

Can't recall the place I've got, but was a block away on same street as host hotel. All my info at office. Will know better by tomorrow on my situation.

So took my 67 to Karl Perf today. As before Ryan very helpful, and got a sneak peek at a project. WOW! They are building a wild, highly custom 56 Chevy Convert! (maybe it was a 55?)

Some very cool, unique features and very innovative! Not sure if allowed to say what these are, since they are working to complete for GoodGuys

Sorry about the toe, I had that happen once and damn near killed me.
Any way I made a call and I have a room in the same motel as Paul and Kathy so I'm set but thanks for the offer.

Thats great Dennis, Hope my swelling goes down enough to go. Driving my truck today was easy, but a manual trans? not so sure?

Yep, the wire wasn't even on the spark plug. Put it back on and everything is good now.

Goldknight, I like you Sig pic.

Ryan, good to hear. I have a miss every morning when I start my car and infrequently while sitting at idle at operating temps. I think I might have a wire loose or a plug not set. I will have to look into this.

For the guys local to Des Moines area. Where is a good place to get some heads and or head work done for some vortec heads or updated Aluminum heads for a Gen 0 350? Karl's Performance is the only shop I have found at this point. Your input would be appreciated.

Not really local to you but I make frequent trips to the Ames/Des Moines area. My stepdad at our shop, JD's Performance, rebuilds cylinder heads. I had a nice set of Vortecs on my 76 Camaro I just sold. He is located in Wapello, IA.

Check out their fender cover for Camaros. It covers the whole front. I'd think it should protect my Camaro
