Does anyone know of any gas stations around Elmhurst, Lombard, Downers Grove area that sell race gas? If not, where else do you fill up at race gas?

I thought all speedways have race gas. Dont quote me on it though. If that's true then go to the one in Downers Grove on Ogden between fairview and main st.

I know lombard (oak brook terrace?) had one on the south side of Roosevelt, maybe a 10 minute cruise from 355, dont remember the station name, but they had it...almost got it once to see what would happen (back when i had my Intrepid)

and that's heading toward downtown chicago, aka going east

I thought most Gas City's carried racing fuel? At least the ones around here in the south suburbs do.

they replaced a majority of the race gas pumps with e-85 at gas city about a year ago. this was when gas was $3+ and e-85 was all the rage
unless they had high sales at a specific location it was taken out the clerk said.

Have any locations on those Gas City's? I cant think of any offhand around here.

The one in Frankfort on Harlem Ave. has racing fuel. I know because my neighbor bought some for his lawn mower... :blink: Then again, the weakest motor he has in his garage is an LS6.
