Help! Where can I buy F&L 111 race gas in San Diego?

For the last 4 years I have been buying my race gas at the SoCo Group gas station in El Cajon. They had leaded 111 octane fuel at the pump for about $5.50 a gallon.

They have stopped selling F&L and are now only selling VP.

Does anybody have F&L Connections in San Diego?
