If you  want readily available true 100 octane gas go to the nearest
general  aviation airport (where the little planes fly).  There you  can
probably buy the av-gas called 100LL.  It's 100 octane, leaded  gas, and
typically costs $3.60 to 4.25 per gallon.  Because it  contains
tetraethyl lead, it wouldn't do in Seth's new Vette, but should  run
fine with no problems in any non-catalyst cars - like  'Vairs.

    Also don't use leaded fuel in any car that has an  O2 sensor (either 
narrow or wideband) in the exhaust since the lead will soon  poison the sensor.
