93 Octane in Tempe, AZ?

I have been searching for 93 octane fuel for awhile. Does anyone have any idea where I can find some in Tempe or as close as possible?

I don't believe it can be found. Race fuel can be found in a few places but everyone has 91 octane high test here.

So Iíll basically have to mix 100 and 87? Also do you know which stations have the race fuel?

Welcome to the American west. 93 octane stops about 2-4 hours west of Dallas.

You are pretty much stuck with e10 91. However, we measure octane differently here in the US, taking two test methods and averaging them. Some countries use only one method, and the one they use yields the higher number. So if you are only looking because your owner's manual calls for 93, don't sweat it. https://blog.brocksperformance.com/f...atings-so-low/

Phoenix area fuel comes from L.A. refineries via pipeline. Tucson gas comes from a TX refinery, so perhaps you might find something different there. I know fuel is generally less $ in Tucson.

Have you filled up at Love’s in Chandler recently? I tried to fill up with 100 octane a couple months ago and it appears they changed the pump nozzle to a larger size that no longer fits into my M235i gas tank. Curious if anyone else has been able to fill up on 100 crane at Love’s recently? It is a great spot to fill up on race gas when in the East Valley area.
