    Kinda weird how various regions have different octanes. 93 is common here, as are 87 and 89, but there is no 91.

    The Husky gas stations up here have 89, 91, and 93 but all 3 are mixed with 10% Ethanol. Shell has 87, 89, and 91. If you believe what they say, at the Shell the 87 has 10% ethanol, 89 has 5%, and 91 has none.

    Most of our stations around here start at 85 and top at 91. I haven't seen any that go higher than that.

    I guess I'm in a part of the country that's weird. 91, 92, and 93 are avail here. 93 @ BP/Amoco, Mobil/Exxon, Shell etc. 91 AND 93 at any Sunoco, 92 at Sheetz & Turkey Hill (they try to sell it for the same as 93 @ Sunoco, BP, etc; it's kinda funny). MOST stations have 92/93 for $0.20 more than 87 but some try to rip you off & charge $0.30 more for 92/93. Sadly, it's ALL 10% crapanol so I get lousy MPG in all my vehicles.

    Wow I need to travel more, I can't recall the last time I stopped at a gas station that didnt carry 93oct. I'm always thrilled to death, whenever I find ethanol free or high oct lead free gas, I don't even look at the price. To me it's the same feeling Mad Max gets when he finds petrol out in the wasteland
