This is the key to fuel performance and also what involves all of the testing/development. Unfortunately this is the one subject that you will not find me going into too much depth about because of those same reasons

However if anyone has any general questions, comments or discussions that they would like to have I would be more than happy to give my thoughts on things as I'm sure Steve would also. If possible I would say lets try to keep this thread as a general "race fuel" discussion. I don't want this to turn into a Werks or Torco or brand xyz spam thread. This will just result in a bunch of mud slinging by people loyal to a specific brand. We all have our own threads on here somewhere so I would say if you have questions, comments, observations or whatever regarding a specific brand please post it on their thread. Just want to keep things friendly and informative for all!

Default question

Cool I have a question, what is up with the exaust gas coolers. I saw some one at a big race out here had one in line on his fuel line not exaust line. Does cool fuel help. The temps out in Arizona will be 120 degrees in a few weeks. I keep my fuel in a cooler but it is hot in a few min.

Default Lower oil content.

What are some of your thought's about the lower oil contents like 9% oil with 30% nitro?
