oxygenated fuel

Has anyone used this stuff yet? If so good results or bad, i would think jetting would be a issue. If anyone has some info on this i would be interested.

Back when I was traveling the road alot for work I had a little Geo Metro for gas mileage. I would get an average of 48-50 mpg with that little thing.
One of the areas I went to would use the oxygenated gas during the winter months. My gas mileage would drop to 45 mpg using it.
I guess this is the smae fuel you are talking about.

Re: Oxygenated Fuel

I assume you are talking about oxygenated racing gas. My brother tried it in his racing motorcycle and found that he needed to fatten it up about 4 jet sizes.

If you talk to the manufacturers of this gas that is about what they recommend. Some people swear by it some swear at it.

Are you talking about Propylene Oxide? I know you can buy this from VP. It's generally prohibited by most sanctioning bodies.

Gas

You can go on VP's webpage, there are several different mixtures of ox fuels, and they are NOT generally approved by the major sanc bodies.
