SUNOCO or VP
I'm curious as to what everybody is using and WHY??
04-04-2007, 05:07 PM #2
VP, I use it because I have a relative that is a dealer.

SUNOCO - About the only one I can get my hands on to.

Heard of Torco oil just not their fuel, so I guess that's going to be "other". I use VP as it's was the only fuel available at the races and is easy to get near home. Now that Sunoco is readily available, I'd like to maybe give it a try.

Kevin and I figured it'll take us one weekend to run through 55 gallons and that's blended.

Vp All The Way Noooooo Sunoco
VP. IS BY FAR A MUCH better fuel than sunoco!!! i talked with randy at watcon several years ago he told me if i valued my motor do not run sunoco unless you absolutely have to. i ran my 1010 on cam 2, the boat always ran the rpm's no hessitation no lean conditions. mixed a batch of sunoco 50/50 with vp. and the boat went lean stalled comeing out of the turns and was down about 110 rpm's then i went back mixed up a new batch of straight 110 sunoco and the boat did an absolute nose dive it would stall, it was so lean,i had to turn the low speeds out a full turn,and the high speeds 1/2 turn and the boat lost about 150 rpm's this was a real stumper i thought there was something wrong with my carbs, pulled them cleaned them still the boat was a turd then i remembered what randy had said so i drained all the fuel went back to the cam2 the boat came back to life again, i had to lean the bottom back down and turn the high speed back in a half turn then the boat ran mint randy was right you can set it up to run sunoco don't get me wrong but you will be running different jetting for sure, i will stay away from 110 sunoco unless it's alllllllllll i can get, thanks for the tid bit on fuel randy

Chalk one up for VP.
VP is hard for me to find here, but it's around. I dont even know if Sunoco is in my area.
Last I knew, Torco is the provided fuel at most grass drags around here. It used to be Phillips, which was a good fuel.
What's everyone running for VP???? C-12?
