Default Somewhere to Buy "high" Octane

Been doing some testing on my turbo motorcycle and I've been having issues with misfires at high RPM. Wondering if maybe the combo of boost and high compression are causing misfires, want to try a slightly higher octane to see if it helps. Anywhere around here sell above 91? Are octane boosters worth a fudge? Other suggestions are welcome

It's a VP station. They have 93 and 100 octane at the pump, and C16 in drums.

There's also a VP that sells the high octane at W Plumb and Lakeside in the southern end of town.
