Dad and I always re-jetted our carbs to run on high-octane race fuels (ELF / VP C-12) for super crisp throttle response/superb engine protection and a significant horsepower increase.
Even when a ban on leaded fuels was enforced in 2000, MX bikes were and are still able to produce decent power on lower octane unleaded's such as ELF BFK-09 (98 Octane Low Emission Motorsport Fuel)
What I'm asking is....do good race fuels help with Kw and drag times in a modern EFI engine like the XRT's or are they an expensive waste of time?
I also understand that I have a 'race-fuel' tune to use with my Ford Flasher....what fuels are suggested?
I know that fuel like Mobil Synergy and Caltex Vortex premium unleaded are the best quality stuff you can get from a servo,
but it's shite compared to the surplus, fresh race fuel I still have stored here and don't wanna put it to waste. I'd only be running it at the drags...and the stuff i have is Unleaded and EPA legal.
Can't seem to get a clear response on this one...Suggestions?
You pose a very valid question mate and ill give you just my own opinion, not gospil, just what i believe.
If you want to get the apsolute MAX out of the T then a race fuel would help in the sence you could utilise a little more timing, if the car was stock or only mild mods and you wernt going to retune it for the higher Octane fuel it would be of no real benifit if it wasnt pinging on the pump fuel.
If you wanted to squeeze a little more boost and timing then the race fuel would be for you.
I love SUNOCO race fuels, i good freind of mine advised me of the quailty of this product and has alot of good things to say about it. Hope that helps
