    VP Race Fuel

    Since summer time is here, I need to stock up on some race fuel for the 1010. Just wondering if you guys have any opinion on either VP C12 or VP-110? Both are leaded race fuels with very close octane numbers. I did a little research and found that people have not noticed any difference. The VP-110 does seem to be considerably less expensive.

    VP-110
    TYPICAL VALUES
    • Color: Purple
    • Motor Octane 107
    • Research Octane: 113
    • R+M/2: 110
    • Specific Gravity: .720-.735 at 60° F


    VP C12

    TYPICAL VALUES
    • Color: Green
    • Motor Octane 108
    • Specific Gravity: .717 at 60

    The Royal Purple raceway in Baytown sells the VP 110 at the pump for about $8.10 a gallon,
    I use a place in Santa Fe that sells the VP 110 for about $8.25 per gallon
    the C12 is $10.25 per gallon,

    The C12 is green with motor octane of 108 the Vp 110 is purple with a motor octane of 105
    the VP-110 is formulated fo use in naturally aspirated engines with CRs up to 12:1
    the C12 is a good all around racing fuel recomended for CRs bleow 15:1

    Randy liked the c12. Higher motor octane.

    Ugh...it is kinda hard to buy 5 gallons of C12 for $62. It is convenience factor as it is a couple of miles from my house and comes in a sealed 5 gallon container, but damn!!
