    Race fuel for the shootout

    Hey guys I have a sunoco race fuel distributor in my area. I have messed around with alot of different race fuels with my time racing motocross and national EDT as well as with the car. I've used vp primarily but the draw back to the vp fuels have always been that it's leaded or requires a stand alone tune to run that particular fuel like vp Ms 109. Well this year sunoco introduced 260 gt, it is 100 octane unleaded oxygenated race fuel that has a stoich of 14.1 What this means to those that don't know is the stoich is roughly the same as 93 octane pump gas! So to put it simple you can run this race fuel in your car and protect it against detonation and make more power. If you have the ability to tune you can see substantial gains. Please all that are interested lmk and i will bring it to the shootout for you. The price is 60 per 5 gal container delivered to the shootout here is the link

    When are you going to be picking it up, David? I might need some depending on a few things.

    Thanks for the service!

    I'm in for 20 gallons (in 5 gal pails), but as you know I'll need it a few weeks prior to the Shootout.

    I'm probably going to get it in September two weeks prior to the shootout I'm just trying to see how many people are interested. I will have to place the order the first of September to make sure it gets here in time.

    I'll pass this time, David.

    I'm hoping I can get E85 + alky to work again.

    Not a problem. I was debating that anyway so if you have to make a minimum then just do it. Do you need me to send you a check?

    It's not a minimum for me it's the way our gas tanks are made its the pump well and tank need at least ten gal of fuel. my 340 dries the well out and goes a bit lean if i dont have enough fuel. I went to pick fuel up today and the price id 65 per 5 with tax because of Illinois. if you do paypal you can just send it the week before the shootout I dont have to pay for it until then.
