Make sure it is unleaded and is legal to run on the street in your area. Do not use the 110, the 100 mixed with 89 or 91 is probably the way to go. You should be able to find a chart on line for mixing. I don't think you will get much benefit past 95 octane.

100? Max we got here is 97 octane, and the second option is 95 octane. They even fill the 97 octane at race tracks to exotic cars here.

Save your $8 a gallon. Fill your tank with 89 and add 3 ounces of Aces IV from BND.

Unless you have some crazy mods and are tuned for it, the race gas will provide no benefit to you.

Higher octane fuels are to stop detonation or spark knock. Guys that need that fuel typically have high compression engines, supercharger or turbo, or nitrous and are tuned for the higher octane fuel.

Running a higher octane fuel will let you add more timing but I wouldn't go doing that unless you are pretty experienced with tuning.

Don't use race gas unless you have too or you are tuned for it.

Save the money, you will just be wasting it
