Hey guys, anyone know of a gas station selling 93 or higher octane near the Costa Mesa/Irvine area? The best I can find is 91.

Most stations have stopped selling 93 octane because of the blend with ethanol. your easiest bet is going to be 91 octane and then use a quality octane booster.

Although you shouldn't need 93 or octane booster. Most bikes will run fine on fresh 91 octance pump gas. You shouldn't need anything higher unless you've got a mod engine with high compression.

I use it in my YZ465. Those old big bore smokers do not like pump gas. I would probably use pump gas in a modern thumper though. Try different brands to see if there is a diff.

The older I get, the faster I was.
