Do a search for this........It has been discussed in detail once before. I'm by far no expert, however, I seem to recall that some of the additives in these products are harmful........Rich had some very good info on this during the last thread......

I keep hearing that, even the local Gas Gas dealer says that, but even he can't tell me where to get it. The only place around here I can find it is at the local stock car track, and it costs $15 on practice days just to get into the pits where the pump is. Any suggestions where to look or how to locate race gas?

Your local motorcycle shop should sell it. The Yamaha shop where I got my bikes sells race fuels from several vendors as does the local Honda shop.

North County Yamaha (which is 5 minutes away from my house) sales it for $35 for 5 gallons. Damn that's costly.

How much does it improve?

I read in MXA that if you don't run avgas in your 4-stroke it will melt the cases.

Finding Race Fuel

#1, try a google search for race fuel.
#2, contact their many 1-800#'s and find a local supplier
#3, if 7$ a gallon is too much...get over it!
I get phillips b37 for 6.25 a gal. delivered.
What is the application?

Generalized, blanket statement. Seemingly implies that simply pouring AvGas into your bike will reap big gains. Not true, even with race gas.:D
