Sorry, too late. Costco is Top Tier gas and has been tested at full octane at stations across the nation. Their gas is also the freshest as they turn over their tanks faster than anyone else out there.
OK, I’m done now.
okay so note to self, I guess Costco is one of the ’good’ 93’s. I have a membership, I guess I just thought they had cheap gas due to cheap additives when really it’s just cheap because they make up for it with membership fees and the fact that they sell just about everything and they’re expecting the customer to do ALL of their shopping there.

2) Made a custom Kydex magnetic phone mount for the radio faceplate.

My old sticky magnet mount worked okay, but the ever-changing weather down here in southeast VA led to hot days loosing the adhesive, and cold days firming up the tape, and I was over it.

So, I disassembled the mount, tossed the ball-clamp, and cut a piece of kydex to start forming. I've had a Recaro bezel waiting to go in, so I used that to form a perfect fit. Did a bunch of trimming, sanding, and used the heatgun to do some last-minute adjustments.

Easily the sturdiest phone mount I've ever had! Held in only by friction.

My only complaint is they don’t have paper towel dispensers by the pumps like QT
you buy a 12-roll inside, and then put a roll in your back seat. that's all it's useful for anyway. My F150 runs on '93 tune so yeah I'm totally going to go to Costco. Membership pays for itself in 2 or 3 months in just gas purchase.

Really, very interesting, BRB, got to grab the bong, to understand the connection.
The song title showing on your radio is Kansas - Dust In The Wind :)

okay will do. Didn’t mean to ruffle feathers.

I am curious though as to why you see many dyno pulls pulling timing, then finding out they filled up at XYZ, then they add some type of octane booster and things magically get back to normal/where it should be. ??
Because they added octane booster.

Sams isn’t top tier but it’s good enough for me. Never had an issue

just ordered mishi rad.... it’s lifetime warranty, so meh. Even if I have to change one day. No big deal.

In high school one of my friends would play Dust in the Wind behind me on a classical guitar as I walked through the hallways. It was my traveling music. No one ever bothered us or asked if we were where we were supposed to be. The staff would close their eyes for a moment, and then the moment would be gone. We would pass before their eyes, a curiosity.

Not trying to start a big debate, rather just trying to help but not all 93 is the same, literally. Not really a big deal if you’re just a cruiser but if you spent money on a tune and are trying to wring out every bit of performance you might be doing yourself a disservice using the cheap places like Costco or GetGo.

If you're trying to wring power on pump gas you're asking for trouble. I would never push limits on 93/92/91

Got the car back from the dealer. Oil change and new hood ajar switch.

makes me happy my eco ford performance is a conservative tune, needing only 91. I use 93, I feel it adds some protection to it, even if wasn't the best quality 93, it will still exceed and keep engine within tolerance.
