Any true 93 octane pumps in oly?
I'm putting a turbo on my bike and I need high octane pump for the street. I've only seen 92 octane everywhere. What's the highest octane pump fuel you've seen in Olympia? I know of the shell e85 station, but I'd have to buy bigger injectors to run e85 and that's not in the budget right now....

looks like you may have to pony up for the injectors and do it right instead of trying to be cheap and hoping you can find a 93 pump that isnt mandated, or controlled by the governing state or federal trade commission?

you spent all that $$ on the turbo, cool...

but to have to run higher octane??? why not dial back a bit of timing, run different injectors, and run 92? makes sence....no?

do it right maybe??

The purpose was to simply see if anyone knew of a 93 pump instead of a 92 pump. I'll already be pulling timing, and I'm actually quite conservative. I'm not aiming for astronomical numbers, but a reliable ride. From the info I've seen (which is significant), there are many zx14s with up to 30k turbocharged miles and no problems. I guess the point of this thread was, why run 92 when I can easily run 93. I don't know if that's an option or not, so I threw it out there to see if anyone knew of a 93 pump.

Because it sounds like doing it isn't going to be so easy after all, otherwise you wouldn't be asking...ehh?

I can't even remember the lasttime I found a gas station running 93 and/or without ethanol. I can get (supposedly) get 93 at Stinker stations in Boise, but it has ethanol and is pointless to even mention because they don't have Stinkers here. Is one octane (and god only knows if it's actually true based on where the gas station gets its service from) really going to make a difference? Carry around a couple of bottles of octane booster if need be.

94 octane in black diamond. I always stop there regardless of how un-full my tank is. Just getting there burns 1/4 tank but the Duc's got a 3 gallon tank so it's kinda retarded.

Just finished a good book about a couple of UK guys who rode from Ushuaia (Patagonia) to Fairbanks, and they spent a lot of time and worry looking for 95 octane! I didn't even know you could get that outside of an airport anymore.

Go 50% bigger on the fuel injectors and run e85 for more power than you could ever make on a turbo motor running 93.

Plus E85 is CHEAP!

Expect fuel economy to drop to the low teens.

Just stopped by the place downtown Olympia. It's right by the Alpine Experience.

http://www.acmefuel.com/fastFuelService.asp

I didn't see a place to just pay w/a debit card, so it looks like you need to sign up for one of thier cards etc to get the ethanol free gas. It's the mid grade, 89 octane, the 87 and whatever the higher octane is, they both can have up to 10 percent ethanol.

The price for the 89 ethanol free is the same price as the high octane, so $3.34 is the price I just saw. Or, $3.3? a gallon.

Their website doesn't have the application to get a card, so I'll probably just call them for the rest of the details.

Not cheap, but a local source for ethanol free gas. This is the only location they (Fast Fuel) have the ethanol free gas.

I'm probably going to try it just to see how much different what I drive/ride runs.

Haven't seen 93 anywhere in WA.
Invest in low compression ratio pistons and make damn sure your WFO A/F ratio is plenty rich and 92 pump gas will be just fine.

Have you already purchased bigger than stock injectors?

You are probably going to have to upgrade the stock parts anyway as they are typically sized to make about 10% more power than stock. No point in going turbo if all you are looking for is 10% more power. And no sense in pushing the fuel pressure up because you will start running into fuel injector lock ups.
