If your gonna run an octane boost id run Torco, & depending on where your located they sell Sunoco 100 @ the pump in certain stations which is another alternative... I know a lot of Supercharged Vettes that use Torco w/ good luck...

Torco is sold by the drum or can, you only run 32oz of it per fix up or a lil more if you like for higher octane!

E85 is what I run in mine. Works great if you can get it where you live. At $3.29 per gallon it's cheap for what it is. I only average 15mpg though. But I would rather have the safety of E85 than run 91 octane.

When i'm going to be racing I mix in some Shell URT 105 or Sunoco 98 since they are unleaded and don't have oxygen in them.

Depends on where you live. They are local so it is easy for me to get some now. Friends stock it at the shop. Other than that, amazon with free shipping is the best bet.

I run race gas in my C6 but was thinking to switch to E85 for the added safety that I hear it provides.

Don't forget water/methanol injection. It has its own list of problems but I don't like giving up mileage or paying high prices for fuel to just cruise on. Only burn meth when in boost so after paying for the kit the costs are very low.

Was thinking of going the meth route as well, not too sure on it though.
