I have been running Sunoco Purple 110  for years..(Distributor is 3 miles from my shop too)

Is the VP C12  the closest thing VP has to the Sunoco 110 ?

If anyone needs the VP Oxy fuels like mr12,q16,mrx01, etc. you can get them on the way in Mass at Hampdon fuel.

I believe that the MR12, MRX01, etc fuels are illegal to posess in Maine.  I know year 1 we were told if we were found to have that type fuel, we were out of there. 

In the past it was the same as Maxton.  If you are running gas class the fuel vendor will fill and seal your tank.  Fuel class pour your own.

I have a freash 5 gallon can of MR12 at the house, but it will stay there and I'll run some 110 and maybe some C-12 for Maine.  Yeah I loose about 5-6 HP, but that's how it is.

Its not illegal to have it its just illegal to sell it in Maine.  The same as here in CT.   We run the MRX-01 and Q-16.  We have run it in both 09 and 10 at Loring as have many others and there is no issue.
In the fuel classes you can bring your own fuel and run the fuel class. The can needs to be a fresh un opened can and the fuel guy has to open it and watch you fill your tank and then he seals the tank.

That's interesting because we were told in 2009 that we could not run it.  We had MR9 with us and were told by race officials that we could not run it.  That's why we ran 110 or C12.

Why do you need to seal a tank if you are running in a fuel class?

You will be allowed to bring your own fuels that are not legal for sale in Maine.  It will need to be in a sealed container and the VP rep will need to inspect our fueling.  He will also hold your fuel for the weekend.  If you are running fuels that the VP has, please help support his trip to the track by using his. 

See you all on Tues, wed, thurs.....

Also it's customary at ECTA to tip the fuel guy if he holds your sealed pails.

Dan I think there was some misused words, fuel is used for gas in a couple posts.

Dean,

If you are in a gas class, you are using gas. In a fuel class you are free to use anything, correct?

Do they require that you use the vendor's gas at Loring?
