I love VP. I use to keep 5 gal drums in my garage when I had my old car.

What station are they selling it at the pump in So Cal? I had to go to shops and order the drums before.

Not sure where in SoCal you are, but Mitchell's Pit Stop in Orange carries Sunoco 100. We prefer Sunoco because it is iso-octane, while VP uses toluene additive. Both will provide enough octane for an OTS race file though.

This preference doesn't apply for 109 and leaded fuels.
