Can you mix avgas and 93 octane pump gas?

Yes you can it works great. We run half and half in our 12.5 compression 454 street car just so it will not pre ignition. Ofcoarse we are at 4200 feet altitude so at lower altitude you would need more octane.

You can also run the av gas alone but put 3oz of Marvel mystery fluid per 5 gallons to lubricate the engine. Eddie

Yes you can but Avgas has a different specific gravity due to being used at high altitudes than automobiles are used to,,,and I don't think it has lead in it so it doesn't lubricate worth a darn. Ran it for years because it was cheaper but always added lead or some kind of lubrication.
