Is there any gas station in Seattle that has 93 octane gas (or higher)??? Not interested in race gas (100 octane) since I need it for everyday driving. My APR chip only has the 93 octane program and the APR folks say that it is not good to rund this program with 92 octane gas.

Most of the gas around here (Western WA) is all from the same refineries, the "branding" is more or less a scam. It's the same base product, brands are differentiated based to the detergents and additives added post refinement.
While travelling, I did find a south eastern WA gas station w/ 93. I got nearly 420 highway miles on that tank!
How do you know that your APR chip has the 93 octane program? Did you request it? Do you have ECMS? I would send it to back to APR for reprogramming at 91 if you can. It's unlikely that you'll be able to find a consistent source of 93 octane in Seattle.
I get jealous about the east coast guys and their Sunoco 94!

except in Vancouver :)
Well, you can go to the shell up by Boeing field and get race gas for a pretty penny.. I'm not sure if they have grades as low as 93 or 94. You could always get high octane and mix your own I guess. You might just have to get your chip reprogrammed for the 91.

94 octane premium. Last time I bought it there (about 6 weeks ago) it was $1.59.9/gal when the best I could find at Chevron was $1.68.9.
Directions: Take the Auburn Way exit from Hiway 18, head south, find the 7-11 on the right and look for the "Big O" tire store just north of the 7-11. The gas pumps there are the CENEX station. Their 3 grades of gas are: 89, 91.5, and 94.

You guys need to take a trip up here to Vancouver. We have 94 octane at Chevron. and I think at Mohawk, too.
