Avgas is good but comes with it's own problems. Very dry fuel, and it's flash point is a lot higher than say 94 octane. That being said you can run a lot more compression with out it detnating. It burns very hot as well, engine temps would go up quit a bit.

As for buying, well if you know a pilot that problem is solved.

Re: Fuel

In Canada Shell V Power 91 has no ethanol ( according to Shell website). 19 litres of that with a bottle of Redline is 40:1

NOTE Ultra 94 has up to 10% ethanol

Not sure about what Esso has
MAAC 37964, IMAA 20680, IMAC 7194
