Race fuel is a performance part
That's right—fuel is a performance part, as critical to your program as a camshaft or piston. A race vehicle is nothing more than a collection of parts. And to have a winning race vehicle, you need the best parts—and that includes VP Racing Fuels. VP Racing Fuels are specifically designed to optimize performance in your application, according to your requirements and your racing fuel rules.
Formulating race fuel is challenging and complex. Recognizing that race fuel is a performance part, VP seeks out and uses only the best components. And the components that yield the best results are expensive. That’s why VP Racing Fuels are typically not inexpensive. VP Racing Fuels are premium products manufactured with premium components. We take no shortcuts. If you see a lower price on another race fuel, your first question should be “what shortcuts were taken in its production” and “what am I risking or sacrificing as a result?”
Price vs. Performance
We encourage you to weigh the price of VP Racing Fuels against the quality and performance gains they deliver. We’re confident you’ll find they're among the most cost-effective parts in your arsenal.
As an example, if you switch a drag car from a generic 116 octane fuel to VP's Q16, you can pick up 30 Hp (and sometimes more) in a 550 in. engine and a .03-.05 gain in your 1/8 mile ET. Even if you're paying $3 more per pass for Q16, that's the cheapest horsepower you can buy!
Or say you switch your circle track car from a “standard” 110 fuel to VP113. You’ll find it makes more power, offers better throttle response, burns cleaner and your engine runs cooler. And because it runs cooler, you’ll maintain power through the longest races and harshest conditions. Considering what you spend on your engine, isn’t it worth $1-2 extra per litre to not only improve your chances of winning but also protect your investment?
