If you’re committed to using E85 type fuels, C85 is by far your best choice. Conventional E85 fuels are notoriously inconsistent, requiring up to a two-jet swing in tuning from one batch of E85 to the next. By contrast, C85 is blended with a consistent proportion of ethanol and every other component in every drum. In addition to taking all the guesswork out of tuning, C85 makes up to 4% more power and torque than conventional E85. With higher quality pure components, C85 is superior to E85 in terms of cooling effect, resistance to detonation and even includes corrosion inhibitors to fight the issues presented by ethanol. C85 works well in drag racing, oval track, off road and virtually any other automotive application, in particular forced induction applications due to its lower vapor pressure. Tests of C85 indicate most applications will require richening up by 1 jet size, or 2-3% over current jetting.We are Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC’s source for VP Racing Fuels.Why purchase VP fuel in sealed pails?

VP Race Fuels all come in specially sealed containers. These containers prevent any evaporation of any additives or of the fuel itself, eliminating any chances of the octane ratings lowering and/or changing. This results in the purest form of race fuel made available to you once you open the containers. Race gas at the pump or track is usually kept in tanks either above or underground. And as you might know already, massive amounts of sediments are trapped inside, resulting in contaminated fuel. Not only that, evaporation occurs by the second, and although you may be buying 100 octane at the pump, you are, in reality, getting 95-97 octane! That’s not right! All VP Race Fuels are specially sealed in containers until the day you open it and use it. The result is the purest form of liquid horsepower available.
