Racing fuel prices

How much is everyone paying for the racing fuel they use, and has it gone up in price since all the other gas has gone up? Torco 110 is 5.20 where I get mine, it's been that price for a year now.

I have paid $6 a gallon at Beech Bend and $5.50 a gallon at Raceway Park in Indy. Pricey to be sure, but regular gas is catching up!

100 LL 3.20 GAL :lol: Been running it in my 514 for 15 years, Still waiting for it to burn my engine up , ruin my valve guides gum up my carb with residue :shock:

13.1 compression cast iron heads but of coarse I run the car at 20000 ft because its a high alttude fuel and not made for use on the ground Even though all small air planes are" WFO" on take off which is O, I FORGOT ON THE GROUND. and never hardly fly above 1500 ft. 8)

I have run it in weed eaters, lawn mowers, farm tracters, 2stroke dirt bikes , 1/4 mile dirt cars, pulling tractors, 4 wheel drive pulling trucks, Boats, and never had a problem with it.

Well I just looked at what I typed I guess I got carried away ops:

Blake,

I checked prices locally yesterday and 100LL is $4.03 a gallon self serve at the Frankfort airport. I remember when I used to gripe about paying $1.80 a gallon for the AV GAS :roll:

Recently Chuck and I have been running the 110 Sunoco fuel but we haven't priced it this year. Will have to look into it soon since we are down to about 20 gallons :shock:

Here's a link where you can check Aviation fuel prices on-line
