OCTANE 93

I'm looking for a gas station that would sell a 93 Octane fuel near Tacoma/Lacey area. Any recommendations or a place that you know it is greatly appreciate. Thanks

Garage List
Not sure if they still do, but the 76 in Auburn on Auburn way has 101, 110, and 118 octane at the pump. You could do most of your tank with 92 and a few gallons of 101 to get the right octane level you're looking for.

Did you ever check this place out? I'm new to the area, and I wouldn't mind knowing where I can find 93 as well...

As of last year that Auburn 76 station had 101 at the pump for $9/gal. Google for an octane calculator to figure out the mix with 92.

Not sure about 93 but I get 92 at Chevron in Olympia/Tumwater area. Chevron typically has the best gas with the Techron, etc. You could always just put in some additive to get a little more octane if you needed.

Tracking down high octane can be a pain as it's pretty rare and usually not local.
