Re: IS the FUEl at the moment a big problem

I have found with my street/race car that if the fuel is 2wks or older the thing runs like a dog. We spent many a dyno session working out what it was, but finally found that the fuel was to blame. I would race for the weekend, put the thing in the shed for three weeks, pull it out and get prepped for the next meeting and find the thing would be down by 50hp and cough, splutter, sound off etc. The only way to fix it is to fill her up with fresh fuel.

Re: IS the FUEl at the moment a big problem

yer thats what mine is doing but its fresh fuel it must be dirty. shakes and feels like a delayed spark but all that stuff is fine it just doesnt what to burn well this fuel. i have to wait till i burn this stuff up and see if non bp fuel is better as said before i had premiun from an independant fuel company and it was fine but it seems to be not long after i put bp ultimatein this has accoured thats why i think its bad fuel and to see dozens of others with same problems on this board.
