    100 octane pump gas locator

    I just found this locator tool on Sunoco's website for their 100 octane pump gas. I figured a lot of people would probably like to give it a tr, especially if you have a 100 octane program. Here it is:

    Overview - Sunoco 260 GT100 Locations

    Lucky for me I will be driving right by one of these gas stations this weekend!

    I fill the once and a while I make it to Lakeville, Conn. to Lime Rock Park. And my local Sunoco station sells 5 gal. pour cans. No need for it at all except that the exhaust smells real sweet.

    It's something akin to, "Napalm son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning... Smell, that gasoline smell, smells like... Victory"

    You don't need to be ridiculously modded at all, if you have a 100 octane program you stand to gain 5-10 hp over the 93 program. Don't quote me on those numbers, but they are in the ballpark. Higher octane fuel will allow your engine to advance timing because it is less prone to detonation, which allows higher compression. I don't think you would see much gain without the proper tune, but you certainly would not cause any harm as long as it is 100 pump gas and not actual race fuel. With race fuel I have been told you could damage your cat(s), however I don't even think this would be an issue if you only ran race fuel every once and awhile. Then again I could be wrong since I have never tried it.

    It will only benefit if you have the 100 octane file as everybody else said, but if you have 91/93 file it wont really do anygood except keep CF's down, with out proper tuning, ie boost/timing, its useless
