OK Keep in mind nothing is carved in stone yet, as I have to check availablity and prices. There is some interest in race fuel and I have a shop that is willing to let me bring gas to DW to sell. So far there seem to be two kinds of fuel that peeps are wanting, VP Ultimate 4 and VP C-12. I can only bring one drum, and maybe a few 5 gallons of a different type. What do I get? Who wants it and how much?

Right now I only know the cost of the VP c-12 (if I get a 55 gallon drum) and that is $6/gallon. I called the bike shops and they are selling it for $7-7.5 a gallon!

Will have the price for Ultimate 4 in a little bit when the guy gets back from lunch.

Haha, I'd love to try some Ult.4 but since everything race fuel related I touch refuses to run, I'll just run my premium pump swill instead of kicking and changing brass all day! :laugh:

Might try the good stuff. No more than a gallon I'd say.

Haven't tried any of the VP fuels but thought about buying some before. I have been real happy running 100 octane low lead aviation fuel with maxima 927, $2.5 a gallon makes a good a alternative, just go to your local airstrip and look for the FBO - Fixed Base Operator, most have a card reader just like at the gas station. My bike runs pretty sour on 91 pump gas.

Cheers

I'd like to try some of the Ult 4. What the heck... DW only happens once a year - It'll be like christmas for the 426. I'll probally go through about 10 gallons.

Fly! You know it and I really like it when I'm ready for it. The low lead is supposed to make the motor run cooler to. Folks that are following say it has a different smell to it but that may or may not be the bike. Wish I could make this DW but too far away for me, you guys have fun and be safe.

I went through about 15 gallons last year between my 125 and Tiggers 60. I have 20 gallons on C12 this year
