Remember, if you are running in the gas classes, you need enough for 2 runs. If you go to impound, it's an ordeal to get more fuel in your tank if needed.

Gary,

I think 'ordeal' is a bit harsh. My guys try to be as accomendating as possible. It gets a little busy in threr sometimes.

Dan was quite accommodating with us last year when checking fuel levels and re-sealing.

I guess I'll go with a 10 gallon cell. Can I fabricate this myself or does it need some certification with it?

I don't know if this is the case or not anymore but you can also (if still allowed) get ERC to seal a 5 gal. jug of gas to use for top-off in impound. Dan?

Yep, that's correct, but the impound person will have to witness you breaking the seals and pouring in the gas and reseal the tank in the car. I guess that's not such an ordeal afterall, that's why I have a 20 gal. tank and buy enough gas to last the event, if I can afford the $14.00 per gal of A8C.

So if I don't plan on breaking any records in 2009, do I still need to buy gas on the track? I just want to tune my car this year; I don't care what class I'll be in. I'm not going to take my engine apart or anything like that if I were to beat a record anyway. I'll probably be more serious about it next year when I decide what my ultimate goals are going to be.

No, The only time it is mandatory to use event gas is if your are running in a gas class for a record. But if your going to use your own gas you may want to enter as a fuel class, just in something strange happens, but I'm the eternal optimist.

As Dallas said, you don't have to, but it is a good idea, and since you are trying to tune to run at Bonneville, you should use the stuff you will run with the next time.... not all gas is the same   undecided

We've been in inpound a time or two. We've always run gas, though not always gas class. Anyway, It's never been an "ordeal" for us to top off if needed.  smiley

Sorry Gary, not trying to step on your toes.  cheers

Mike,

You guys are special. Gary not so much so.

Everyone knows I play favorites and only cater to the "Big Guns"

Boosted,

Take Dallas' and Stainless' advice. Even if you are not running a record use and tune with the stuff you will required to use.

That's good news about being able to run whatever gas I bring because I will be doing most of my engine tuning on the dyno and the 1/4 mile with the local Oregon gas or E85 anyway. I think I'll be plenty busy with tuning the chassis / aero this year as it is. Then in 2010 I will hopefully have a balls-out small small block in there that I will tune for the track gas or E85. Baby steps I guess.

E85 moves you to fuel class.
