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 racing fuel. Racing fuel that is specifically designed to optimize performance in your application, according to your requirements and your fuel rules.
When you crave the most power, best performance and must-have fuel consistency, you need VP Racing Fuels.
We stock the most popular VP Racing Fuels:
Designed for lower compression engines in racing series that require a consistent, cost-effective controlled fuel. Spec Fuel for Legends Nationals.
- Color: Light Blue
- Motor Octane 96
- Specific Gravity: .715 at 60° F
Not your “standard” 110! Highest rated MON of any 110 fuel on the market. Formulated for use in naturally aspirated engines with CRs up to approximately 12:1-13:1. Good lower cost alternative. Spec fuel for DIRTcar Northeast.
- Color: Purple
- Motor Octane 107
- Research Octane: 113
- R+M/2: 110
- Specific Gravity: .720-.735 at 60° F
The best all around racing fuel made. Recommended for CRs below 15:1, satisfying the needs of 75% of today’s race engines. One of the winningest fuels in racing history, including Modified Tour, Indy Lights, GNN, NHRA, AMA as well as other local and national championships across the U.S. and around the world. Spec fuel for DIRTcar Northeast.
- Color: Green
- Motor Octane 108
- Specific Gravity: .717 at 60° F
Recommended for naturally aspirated engines operating at over 8000 RPMs with CRs of 14:1 and higher. Spec fuel for NHRA Comp Eliminator, NMRA and NMCA.
- Color: Yellow
- Motor Octane 114
- Specific Gravity: .696 at 60° F
Used in turbocharged engines, blown engines and nitrous applications with CRs up to 17:1. Recommended by the top nitrous oxide companies. Spec Fuel for NHRA Comp Eliminator.
- Color: Blue
- Motor Octane 117
- Specific Gravity: .735 at 60° F
Q16 is highly oxygenated, requiring a 4-6% increase in fuel flow, which will make 3-5% more power than competitive 116 octane fuels. Excellent in higher compression Super Late Model or other applications up to 17:1. Q16’s superior vaporization characteristics yield more efficient combustion and lower engine operating temperatures. The added fuel flow also effectively increases the octane of Q16 by 6-8 numbers above its standard ASTM octane rating, yielding greater detonation protection.
- Color: Yellow
- Motor Octane 116
- Research Octane: 120+
- Specific Gravity: .716 at 60° F
MS103 provides power and protection equal to some leaded racing fuels. Compared to Motorsport 101, it allows even more aggressive timing and higher compression-up to 14:1 in cast iron head engines and up to 15:1 with aluminum heads. Can allow doubling of stock boost – consult your engine builder. Also contains no metal compounds and won’t harm catalytic converters or oxygen sensors
- Color: Red
- Motor Octane 99
- R+M/2: 103
- Specific Gravity: .743 at 60° F
In engines that can run on pump gas, MS109 is a direct replacement that produces more power than any other unleaded fuel – up to 5% more than premium unleaded. Recommended for applications with up to 25 lbs of boost and naturally aspirated engines with CRs up to 15:1. Compared to other unleaded fuels, MS109 offers better detonation protection as well.
- Color: Clear
- Motor Octane 101
- Research Octane: 109
- R+M/2: 105
- Specific Gravity: .722 at 60° F
M1 Racing Methanol has a 99.95% minimum purity – the highest purity available in the U.S. With M1, engines run cooler and are less subject to corrosion. VP uses only lined drums which prohibit rust, corrosion and metal deposits that can contaminate fuel delivery systems. Recommended for all methanol-legal racing applications.
