What a sad situation!! 93 Octane is basically Swill!!!
There must be a solution for Porsche's in Cali.

I guess if I lived in Cali with Swill for Fuel, I would:

1) Find a source for Aviation fuel or Race Fuel
2) Find a fuel additive that works, like Toluene or Aniline possibly
3) Re-Tune Car with less Boost, Less Ignition advance, and possibly in the long run 6.5:1 compression.


Sorry about hat last bit, I was cutting the State of California out of all my Road Atlas's and got carried away.
