    Is this essentially the same end result as Torco Accelerator (I see it used MMT's) but is it also therefore likely to be a spark plug destroyer.

    First I've heard of it. I'd rather just buy race gas.

    Just more convenient for me out on Long Island as the nearby race gas is 45 miles a way and is $9.30 a gallon... this works out a little cheaper... but if their product is for real I may reverse engineer it and undersell them

    Depending on where you are located, speed world in riverhead has a decent selection of VP fuels but it is indeed on the pricey side. Strong oil in watermill is apparently going to begin carrying it in the near future as well. I've heard of the stuff you posted but am sort of scared to try it. Someone with more balls and disposable income s than me should do some pulls and log timing Click here to enlarge

    For me, best bang for the buck is tuning for e85 which is also available in watermill at strong oil co

    MMT sucks for your engine. Coats the pistons and valves plus can start to clog cats like lead. It's technically illegal in the US. I can get it for free and won't even use it in my jetski. If you are broke it will add octane but it's a band aid

    Funny. Over heard a guy in a fiat abarth in the tech lane talking about it. Was bored so I decided to google it. So, yea, second time hearing about it for me. Wouldn't touch it personally...well maybe one try, if it was handed to me at a gas station.

    No its not. I started a tread on thi a while back and you moved. it. I spoke with these guys at SEMA. the product seems pretty solid. My thought is: is this a viable cost affective alternative to meth and e85?

    I was in Speedworld the other day asking about 108 Oct by Torco.... they did not even carry MS109

    I know about the E85 and may do that for my 996 TTS eventually but was just looking to see if this race-gas stuff is essentially the same as Torco Accelerator... from all your posts it appears to be

    Think I'll just buy 55 gallon drums of 108 Torco and mix with 93 pump

    Was thinking if the race-gas was GOOD.. would send it off to a lab, copy it and undersell the bejesus out of them.... meh, if it is just MMT's as per the MSDS then will pass

    Thx for advice

    Speedworld is hit or miss but i have bought a few different VP products the over the last year or so. Not sure what they keep on hand now but it appears to vary each time i go in. I've been nagging the guys at Strong Oil to hurry up and start carrying it but they said it'll be a while, maybe this summer. He used to have it on pump about 5 years ago before they renovated but apparently they will be just selling prepackaged drums of VP. If speedworld was a letdown all we can do is keep our fingers crossed that these guys come through i guess. SK Speed is the closest place i know of that will DEFINITELY have it, and not having the means to transport large quantities at once it's inconvenient for me

    Yeah I go to SK Speed as well, great place.. I am in NYC and Quogue

    I liked the idea of this race-gas if indeed it does not damage engines as indeed they and their reviewers claim... (most based in MN BTW)

    This stuff seems pretty legit to me. I think I'll give it a try. It's certainly not cheap though. Basically need two cans at $30/can to go with a full tank (16) gallons of 93 oct to make 101 octane race gas. So that single $60/gallon equals out to another $3.75/gallon on top of your price of gas. In my case though it's more about convenience. The ONLY place that I know of that sells race gas around me is at the local dragstrip which is 25 minutes away, and $10/gallon.

    Convenience does win...... hard getting a 55 gallon drum safely near my house for 108 oct..... but I wonder how different to the much cheaper Torco Accelerator this really is
