    Anyone know where I can get High Octane Unleaded, somewhere near Reading?

    I'm having a knock problem, and would like to see if it is just bad gas.

    Thanks much.

    I'd like to switch over to E85, but Allentown is about an hour drive for me.

    I know they have race gas at Maple Grove, but they are closed for the off season.

    Actually, do you know where 73 and Rt 12 meet. There is a place called Tailgaters? Turn left at that intersection and go down a little ways and on your left is a fuel stop. They have leaded and unleaded gas. Also in leesport there is a place to get it. I can find out names if you would like.

    If you could find the names out, it would be very helpful. I know where Tailgaters is, but don't remember seeing anything around there.

    Thanks.

    What octane are you looking for? I think my stepfather gets 110 leaded for like 5 a gallon.

    I need unleaded. I'd be happy with anything 100+, higher the better.

    Find racing fuel in Reading, PA on Local.com

    I just move to West Chester area... I use local.com to find many things. May I recommend VP Streetblaze 103. It is un-leaded and primarily what I run through my Galant VR-4

    And you will pay out the ASS for it. Do not go there. The place i was talking about is Willow Creek Fuel. They have a website. And their prices are reasonable.

    Thanks James, good looking out.

    Think I found my knock problem. I have SS heat shield on my exhaust manifold, it was resonating when ever I hit 3000 rpms for some reason.

    I'll probably pick up a few gallons just to see what my 16G can do, before I put my Holset on.


    Thanks for everyones help.

    I got a WH1C with a BEP .55 housing. WH1C is the same as a HX-35, but off a 94.

    What are you going to do for the water pipe clearance? I got NT pipe, I'm going to dent, but I'll to get rid of the oil cooler then.

    I will be putting this in my talon, not my laser which is in my profile pics. So, it will be 5 months or so until I actually run this turbo.

    James, do you know of Willow Creek carries Sunoco 116? I see on their homepage that they now carry Sunoco racing fuel, but I wasn't able to get ahold of anyone when I tried calling today.

    I know that they only carry sunoco products from what my SF tells me. They have had it for some time now too, he was buying it before summer last year.

    I wanna buy like 102 unleaded and see what i can blow up.

    Hopefully their prices are reasonable. I was able to get 116 from Tony for about $6/gallon this past summer. But when I called the place, they said they didn't have any more, nor know when they'd be getting any more in.

    What are you doing with 116? Is your car ready for meth? My stepfather buys 4 gallon jugs for like approx 5 some. Again, that was during summer. Prices have dropped now. Even on race gas.

    I used it at the drag strip. I've got the tune pretty much done, but I still get a few blips of knock. I ran the 116 to eliminate the knock and allow me to run leaner and higher timing. I got it down to 11.6:1 and 19.3* of timing. And that was pretty conservative. I also have some E85 at home, but I don't know what I'm going to do with it. Right now I'm too lazy to retune the car, but maybe if I'm bored I'll use it.

    What kind of boost? 20 * is a lot for that kind of fuel.
