Bolivia Fuel Situation

Deos anyone know if there are certain gas stations in Bolivia that sell better quality gasoline and which gas stations to avoid. We have heard the quality of fuel (gasoline and diesel) is the worst in SAmerica. Also are there any additives sold which can be added which can be added to improve the quality of fuel. Thanks

fuel is bad

Yes, the fuel is bad - often you can't find anything that is marked as above 83 octane, and then I doubt that number is true.  Our car (which uses 87 octane) started pinging in Peru and Bolivia.  We did buy some octane boost additive and that seemed to clear things up.  I don't remember the brand but it was in a bright red bottle marked 'barely street legal' or something silly like that.
