For those who already know it, this is no news. For those who don't, the 76 station by the Renton Highlands Safeway sells 93 gas. Modified turbo cars love this, but even NA engines like my 540 feel the difference. As far as I know, there are only three stations in WA State that sell 93, and I still have to verify a claim that a Sunoco next to the raceways sells 101.

So, it's the same price as 91? Doesn't make sense. Our gas has a spread of $0.20 per gallon from 87 to 91.

I know. Renton is not a high end neighborhood of Seattle, and everything is a lot cheaper than other areas. Other gas stations there sell premium for 2.69. Driving north five miles to Bellevue where the likes of Bill Gates and others live, the same gas goes for 2.99 or even 3.09

RON Reaserch Octane Number. (Used in Europe and elswhere in gas stations)
MON Motor Octane Number.
AKI Anti-Knock Index. This is the number that is posted on the gas station in the USA as "Octane". It is derived as (RON + MON)/2

98 in Europe is 93 here in the states. 93 was readily available when I lived in NJ but not in Cali.
