    Any Reason Not To Run Straight VP 101 or 109 without mixing, other than costs and the fact that it may not do very much?

    Regardless of the additional octane considered not necessary, I think these fuels and mixtures are better suited for making more power (again, regardless of octane).

    Wasting your money number 1 , the burn rate may effect performance 2

    You would be better going to a SUNOCO station that carry's GT260 at 1/3 the cost if you want a better fuel than 93 for racing

    I tried 109 and Torco additive and saw no postive results. Until we can do a race gas tune don't see any benefit.

    GT260 is not available as far as I can see. And in what quantifiable way with the burn rate negatively effect the engine?

    It seems everyone wants to run 109 for either real (minor) gains or the placebo effect. For me, the summer months have significantly cut my power-now I know gas can't completely replace sucky air, but I would not mine gaining an edge that I wish it had never lost.

    TC got no good gas here other than Exxon 93 (and that shows up in an unmarked tanker so who knows-could be watered down car piss).

    Does VP make any street gas you endorse?
