91-93 gas in NYC or Westchester?

NYers, anyone know of functioning gas stations with 91-93 gas and <5 hour waits in the NYC area?

My M3 is safely garaged, but I need to take her to a wedding this weekend in Tarrytown, and am a bit concerned about draining the tank.

I'm also very upset I will likely need to drive conservatively.

Is it filled up right now? Tarrytown is only 42 miles away from Bay Parkway (used this location as an estimate). M3's range is easily in the 300's on a 16.6 gal tank with an additional 3.3gal for reserve.

I dont think u should be worried about draining the tank

is that range for stop and go on every single block? I'm just thinking that u'd be wanting to get on the highway ASAP and taking the hudson parkway or FDR and Maj Deegan to get to tarrytown.

Go north before the wedding. some nice driving roads as you head up the Saw Mill, and you can get gas more easily in westchester or poughkipsee area.

I'm on Long Island fairly close to the city, and the lines for gas here are simply unbelievable. My wife read this morning, though, that a major shipment of fuel just hit the area, so now it's just a matter of getting it distributed. And once electricity is more fully restored in the next few days, those stations that had been sitting idle will be up and running, and people will stop filling jerry cans for their generators.

I was in southern NJ several weeks ago after a track day and was on fumes, with a good 30 miles or so to go before the next Sunoco on the Jersey Turnpike. It was a bit tense, but hypermiling an M3 can be done. I just cruised at 60-65mph in 7th gear, with Accords, Geo Metros and ox carts blowing by me in the left lane...

Exit 4 on i95 in CT make a left right after you exit. Then drive about 1/4 mile then on the corner you'll see 2 gas stations. It may look deserted but at first but the gas station will pop up you see them. My GF aunt lives near there and told me about it. You only pay 2 tolls one for 6.50 and another for 1.50

I have been seeing the same issue, no premium anywhere. I just stocked up on octane boost. I think others had the same idea as octane boost was sold out at most stores I went to.
