91 Octane - N. Ill/S. Wisc?

Hi all,
getting a stage 2 install and tune next month.
Want to get the car tuned on both 93 and 91 octane so I can take it west and run a 91 map if needed (read Colorado). I can get 93 octane readily around here but am struggling to find 91 octane anywhere nearby.
Any suggestions for finding 91 in the northern Illinois or Southern Wisconsin areas??
Thanks!

Whos tuning your car? What EM are you using? When I had my car tuned, it was with 92OCT (in WA), bt my tuner tweaked all my maps for 91OCT (for KS) and both maps work incredible. I didnt have to have 91OCT in my car when it was tuned.

Give me $50 and I'll ship you a gallon lol.

Just try your local oil company, you can probably order a pale of it from them.

Newto,
its a pretty well known local shop near O'Hare.
I asked about generating a map without fuel. Shop policy is if they can't touch it, they can't tune it. So no maps w/o fuel. EM I was running was Cobb S1. Now stock awaiting mods install.
Rcrs - thanks. Will see what I can do...

Theres a couple shops around there (DS1, P & L, Benchmark). My car is sitting at Benchmark right now waiting for me to pick it up. That sucks to hear they wont tune like that. I can kind of understand why also tho too. Good luck with everything, be sure to keep us updated.
