    Race fuel or leaded 100LL gasoline, where do you buy?

    Just curious where do you guys buy race fuel or aviation fuel 100LL?

    And what's the going price in Canada?

    If you can source non-leaded high octane gasoline rather than 100LL aviation fuel, I urge you to do so. 'Low Lead' aviation fuel actually has a huge amount of lead, 2 grams per gallon, roughly 2000 times the maximum lead allowed in unleaded gasoline.

    Good luck finding somewhere that sells unleaded race fuel. The higher octane rating comes from the use of tetraethyl lead.

    The lead additive is simply a cheap shortcut to high octane ratings. It is entirely possible to refine and produce high octane gasoline without the lead. Indeed, multiple race fuel suppliers do so.

    In Canada there are several suppliers such as Ontario Competition Fuels.

    Available in Ottawa at Stinson.

    Lead in the fuel is in my view an archaic additive with well understood pollutant downsides that is simply not necessary anymore. It is gone from all or almost all organized forms of Motorsport.

    Aviation gasoline is the last regulatory holdover and that is also expected to fade away.

    I need it for that 98 gp1200 I bought. 170 psi. Also was thinking if running some in my last tank of fuel before winter on the other skis. Might even keep a small amount on the ski for long trips where I have to fill up on water to bring octane up once I get that et18 I there.
