SAN ANTONIO, TX (November 21, 2013) VP Racing Fuels today introduced “C45™,” a leaded fuel blend offering the best performance in naturally aspirated drag race engines on the planet, according to Jason Rueckert, VP’s Regional Manager-Midwest.
“In a test on a 565 inch BBC, our Q16 race fuel made an average of 1,015 HP,” said Rueckert. “After switching to C45 and adding 4 percent more fuel, it picked up 18 HP over Q16. Since nobody else can kick Q16’s butt for All Motor, we had to do it ourselves!”
“C45 is designed strictly for All Motor applications, meaning naturally aspirated engines,” Rueckert added. “It’s oxygenated and when tuned properly, will handle up to 16:1 compression. It will not handle boost or nitrous. With its 100 motor octane rating, pulling a couple degrees of timing at first to be safe is recommended. It will require approximately 4 to 6 percent more fuel than VP’s Q16 so a purpose-built carburetor will most likely be in order.”
“In the hands of a knowledgeable tuner,” Rueckert concluded, “C45 cannot be beat for power and torque.”
Technical questions about C45 can be directed to VP’s Tech Support staff at 812-878-2025 or DragTech@vpracingfuels.com.
