I was wondering what fuel to use in my Parilla Leopard. I was told that I could use 91 pump fuel to do some general testing and would need 98 leaded for competition. Does that sound right and if so where do I get the 98 leaded?

Any of the race tracks carry the 98L fuel. Pump gas will work for testing however you have to watch out for a couple things. First the fuel is not consistent so your engine tuning will change with every batch of fuel you get. The other thing is pump gas is full of additives and other fun stuff that will actually make the engine go faster than race gas. It will leave a residue inside of your tank and fuel hoses, and you could run into issues when you go into fuel tech at a race. When we use pump gas for practice we have a separate gas tank and fuel lines that we use, and the stuff we show up with on race day has only ever had the proper fuel in it.October 21, 2009 at 12:16 am #63281Rick SchmidtParticipant

By proper, you mean the stuff that burns the eyes and throat something fierce?
Just saying? 😉October 21, 2009 at 6:53 pm #63282Greg WelchParticipant
Please stop giving away my secrets to speed. I thought everyone just had tears of joy when I took to the track, but I guess not.
