93 Octane/e85 fuel

Didn't see a post in this forum about fuel locations so I started one.

Since purchasing my GTI, I have been on the lookout for some 93 Octane or e85 fuel. So far I haven't found any near Puyallup (only been looking for 3 weeks since purchase).

There is a lot of 92 Octane fuel here, seems like the gas stations are deliberately sabotaging people who want to tune their autos lol.

Anyone near me in Puyallup know of some gas stations that sell the good stuff?

I noticed that in a few places. Was wondering if it was just for the vehicles on base or what not. I have a bunch by me in Florida. Regular gas stations.

Check out this site:

I've been to the one in Orting. Only 4 pumps, and kinda hard to get in and out of depending on when the high school lets out, but relatively close.

There's E85 in Snoqualmie, and up north of Marysville. The Snoqualmie station is called Gateway Gas and Deli, and has quality E85 all year.

93 Octane/e85 fuel

Hey guys,
Ive noticed that united service stations have now got 100 octane fuel. Has anyone tried it? Good or bad? Would it be bad for my engine if its tuned for 98 octane?

Nice, 98 and 100 at the pump. 91 max here in California. 100 should be fine for your car. If it is tuned for 98 and you are not seeing any knock after you log some 4th gear runs then it won't benefit you. If however you are seeing some timing being pulled it will provide benefit and ideally you would be able to run an even more aggressive 100oct tune though I suspect the increase in power would be minor.
