Racers price isnt to bad, I think the last time I got some it was $6.72 a gallon but that has been about 2-3 weeks so it might be $7.00+ now the was regular has gone up

The shelf life on that M5 is very short, only like 12 hr's after you put it in your fuel cell. And I think like 3 months in the drum.

VP guy said it will keep for years sealed in the drum, can stay weeks in the cell if the vent is capped. Just like any alky-race fuel............
