Methanol only.....not the kind with top end lube in it either... It will get you tossed in tech. I had to order mine from my fuel dist. because the track wants 3 bucks a gallon for fuel and I don't want that trash in my motor....

methanol, the track you run at should sell it or one of the part dealers that come to the track.

Jammin' We don't use any top end lube at all in our fuel. It's a nightmare if you don't maintain the little briggs and keep real fresh oil in em'. After every race night it is essential to run pump gas through the motor and carb to dissipate the fuel and lube the valves, guides etc.. This is especially important to the modified class engines carb. There is a lot of gasket material in there that will be eaten alive by raw methanol...

I guess Marvel mystery oil is a definite need then before and after the races

Jam... We run a 50/50 marvel and pump gas through the carb and motor.. Just make sure there isn't any left in the tank cuz you won't pass tech if there is a fuel check..

Microds run gas
We run good old 93 octane gas. And yes my motor can use its full potential you have to have it right on the edge of the compression stroke or it will rip the starter out of your hand.
