    Racing fuel in south texas?

    Does anyone know where to buy racing fuel in galveston or clear lake texas? I just bought a pro 785 with compression about 160 I was told to mix 1/2 premium and 1/2 100 octaine racing fuel for the best results ---but if i had more that 160 compression I needed to go with all 100-103 octaine.

    I have been looking on the internet but keepcoming up dry.
    Thanks,

    I know that you can get it in Pasadena which is a little ways from you, but check with Richard @ WFO Performance I sure he can either get it for you in Houston or point you in the right direction.

    There has been lots of back and forth on the subject, but for a short term riding fix you may be able to purchase aviation fuel, called 100LL, or 100 Low Lead.

    It is actually medium lead, and sometimes you will find even higher lead and higher octane aviation fuels.

    Aviation fuel is rated differently than pump gas, and it burns differently, so it is not directly comparable to gas station fuel, or even racing fuel.

    Search for AVGAS to find more info

    thanks, I have heard from 3 different racers not to use AV gas, it has way to much lead and it is used for lower compression engines and 10,000 ft and running low rpm's 2500 tops,
    thanks,
