Where do you buy said 97 octane fuel without having to burn through my wallet?

well, gas city used to sell racing fuel around here from the pump i think it was 103 octane or some crap, and they also used to sell leaded race gas like 110 or 115 but the nozzle was big so you couldnt fit it in a normal gas tank filler neck
