If i remember correct i saw on sunoco website that a 55 gallon drum of purple fuel was $240.00 or somewhere around that price i would suggest if u have a gas supplier close bye ask them to order u some i get my local supplier to order mine i give him 3.28 a gallon for 119 octane i would say the higher octane u could get would be better for that much compression i run 11.2.1 compression on 119 and runs great. thats my 2 cents

Contact Dan Wall at Fuels For Racing. His number is 800-769-7582 or email: Dan is the wholesale supplier of racing fuels for Koch Industry. Leaded and unleaded with various octanes along with pure racing-grade methanol.
Dan will also work with racers to supply bulk quantities at a discount. Ask him about his "$10.dollar coupons".

I suggest you avoid aviation fuel as it is not formulated for racing engines but for airplane engines.

Tell Dan you heard about him from a Jayhawk Racing Journal staff member.

ask around to your fellow racers i nyour area or look in the phone book for fuel/oil distributors.

youll find it for sure in drums somewhere..

i like the fuel sponsor deal i had 4 people buying my fuel at once, that way its a monthly thing and im not committed if they pay me couple grand up front to race every week..

i just told them it was 250 a drum and was paying 230.

they knew if they watched me race 3 times i was coming for more money, no sweat!!!!

I purchased two 55 gallon barrels of Turbo Blue from M&M Racing Equipment(sponsor of this site) for $200.00 a barrel. Sunoco make Turbo Blue, so I dont see much difference in the products. Sunoco's website and Turbo Blue's website I know if you contact Turbo Blue they can tell you the closest distributor.
