octane Canada vs USA

Does anyone know if the Gas in Canada is rateded the same as the USA?I notice loads of people running 93 , but the best I can get is Shell 91.My hand held only tunes up to 91.
Also will adding octane boost help any?
thanks

I can get 93 locally but most places are 91~ I only run 93 just to be safe and ... you cant get 91 anyway most of the places I go only 93.

Octane booster really does jack crap (the kind you buy at walmart)

I can pick up 100+ octane back home at a certian gas station where racers stop to fill up. Just not practical to use though.

Re: octane Canada vs USA

I can get 100+ at a full service sgation here. Not only do they let you fill your tank with the stuff but won't say anything when you just drive away.

Of course I havent yet, maybe when I get my nitrous I will try some out, get a badass track tune!
