Fuel for the July event
« on: May 21, 2011, 05:29:58 AM »
Are you going to be using the same fuel vendor for the July event?  I know it was a VP vendor for the 1st to times.  With the MR fuels being illegal in Maine, I asume it will be the sma e C-12, C-16 and streetable 100.  Just getting a heads up on what to tune to as we use MR-12 in Maxton.

Now taking pre-orders.  Please call the number below.  Prepaid orders get a 10% discount.  Pre-order closing date is Thursday, July 7th.

Due to Maine laws, I cannot sell fuel containing MTBE (U4, MR, VP113, Q16).

110, C12, C14, C16, Streetblaze 100, MS109E are the most common fuels that I sell.  Call me about others.

Click here for a link to VP's on-line fuel info. http://www.vpracingfuels.com/vp-drag-racing.html  Call if you need help choosing a fuel.

Sorry Charles, Slim wins the prize.  VP113 contains MTBE, so I can't sell it in Maine.

Maine is much smarter than the PRK, they still use it i think, what crappola that stuff is.
It's just a case of too soon old and too late smart. Will Penny

I'll be giving you a call for some C-12.  I'm going to miss that MR-12 though.  On the dyno the best tune we could get lost 5 HP without the magic MR-12.  Looking forward to being back at Loring.

I have a question about the use of leaded fuels with an air fuel ratio gauge.  I have heard that the lead will foul up the sensor and render the reading inaccurate.  Is this true, and if so, what is the alternative?

I'd have to say yes.  Running MR12 I seem to go through O2 sensors often.  I now just buy the Bosch O2 sensor from the auto parts store and wire up the connector.  It's cheaper.

I agree that leaded fuel is hard on O2 sensors, but I don't think it affects the accuracy of the reading.

BTW, O'Reilly's sells Bosch sensors for $51, I'll look up their part # if anyone needs one.

If anyone needs the VP Oxy fuels like mr12,q16,mrx01, etc. you can get them on the way in Mass at Hampdon fuel. Its not that far out of the way for anyone coming up thru New England.
If its NOT an oxy fuel you need, that can be sold in Maine, please buy it at the track to support the track fuel supplier for coming to the event.
