Racing Fuel VP
Has anyone had any experince in using any type of fuel like VP110, or MRX01... Or will it hurt the ski???

Running race fuel will hurt your ski. 91-93 octane is all thats needed.

I can't see how race fuel will hurt your ski mechanically, but the added octane is unnecessary and will hurt performance, not to mention your wallet !

It won't hurt it but it will make it slower at high cost.
Higher octane isn't like NOS, it's just a more stable fuel that has better resistance to deto, lower octane fuel will yield the best results as long as the knock sensor doesn't kick in, the best compromise is premium pump gas, it's just what you need for deto safe performance.

I'm in the caribbean we have 89 and they tell us 93 I think it's more like 90 or 91 octane, if I mix VP 104 with this 91 octane fuel (Half and half) by how much will that increase the octane level in my fuel.
Remember your (US) 91 is equivalent to 95 ron.

As long as the same method was used to measure the octane in the pump and race fuel, and you mix them 50-50, all you have to do is add the 2 numbers and then divide by 2 to get the new octane number.
