Leaded fuel will ball up your O2s

If they can get 110 t they can get lower. Just buy it buy the barrel. It's cheaper $200-$250 is a good range. Ask if it's vp or sunoco.

Check back with the race gas guy and see if they have unleaded race fuel. If they do not have it in stock see if they will get some. Like extreme said you can get some bucks in the long run if you get a barrel.

If it's 110 unleaded you can mix it with lower octane fuel to save money and achieve roughly 100 octane. I would say a 50/50 mix of 91/93 unleaded and 110 unleaded should put you right around 100.
