    Pump gas is all you need unless you have real high compression.
    all you will be doin is wasting money.

      The reason that i wanted to know where i could get it is becuase, i want to get a head kit, and wanted to get a get a higher compression. It says that you need to run a higher a hihger octane fuel or alchol in order fo it to run the higher compression.

        Race gas

        My favorite is Sunoco 116 Octane Maximal.

        I get it delivered to my door by ordering online at:

          I live in Suffolk VA and there is a tiny air port, I believe its called Hampton Roads airport that sells 110 octane that you can get from there.

            Aircraft fuel

            Has a lower specific gravity. It's intended for a completely different purpose. Aviation fuel works in conditions of lower air pressure (because of higher altitudes), cooler temperatures (same reasons) and static rpm (engines of aircraft are not continually reving up and dowl like a GoPed).

            Just don't bother with the Av gas.

            As far as going with Alcohol is concerned, if you don't race it:

            1.) burns up very quickly
            2.) disolves engine gaskets and carb gaskets
            3.) requires flushing your engine afterwards by running race gas so might as well just get the race gas.

              The gas at this airport is fine, infact alot of my friends run it and there peds run very clean.

                So you are saying

                That everything that I'm saying is wrong.

                I'll just butt out and leave this issue to those who HAVE to be right, then.

                  Im not saying your wrong, I just know it isnt bad to run that fuel in the motors, cause all the motors that ive ever run that fuel in run fine.
