Get some no-prep testing in.   ;D

And we'll probably get on TV!  Southside Outlaws.  Only one episode. But, not for the no-prep racing.  [copswithclub]

Filled up tonight at the BP in Dorr. Each jump in grade is 35 cents! So 93 octane is 70 cents more than reg. WTF?!!! WHY? Whatever happened to the 10 cent per grade increase?

Apparently BP in Dorr just wants to screw their customers.

there seems to be no consistency even with the same brand station. Shell jumped up to 74 cents more over regular last year from .68. The BP at 60th and kzoo is .70 more but the BP in Caledonia is .60 more. Costco is .50 more

I was a Shell only buyer for 20 years but since they are the highest I have changed. They are always the first to go up when the gas prices do also. BP is one of the last so when I see the prices are going up like yesterday I stop by BP and topped off the tank on my way home from work.

Some on the Dodge sites have said they see the least amount of knock with BP also. The 392's can reduce timing even with 93 so finding the best 93 could make a difference in performance

 Caledonia BP also has 90 octane non-ethanol for those who prefer it in older carbed vehicles or lawn equipment and snowblowers.

its .60 from 87-93 by me.    Its about the normal spread im used to.   Dont usually care.  Just about every daily gasser Ive ever had detonates at light to mid throttle during the summer no matter the brand of fuel.  So I wont use anything less the 93.   

  Im pretty sure its the primary reason why so many GM SUVs with LSx engines kill bearings for no reason.    Mom loads up 4 kids and all their sports gear.    Rolls around on 87 octane  weighted down going 85 (except when she is looking at her smart phone. Then she is drifting the lane going 55-60) while the motor lightly detonates for miles and miles and miles.

Get some e50 or better and you'll never have knock again.     ;D

The Raptor is flex so switched to "e85".  Price between that and the premium I would run otherwise varies greatly by station also.  One meijer in battle creek has e85 up to almost 87 in price.

Nice cruising weather here. Car I rented is a Fusion Platinum AWD .   Drives nice.  We took it out all day today. Went to the Kennedy Space Center.
