C85 Ethanol Racing Fuel

For racers using E85 fuel, VP’s new C85 race fuel is definitely worth a look. Conventional E85 fuels are corrosive and inconsistent with wide variations in ethanol content that pose constant tuning challenges. By contrast, C85 is blended with a consistent proportion of ethanol and other components in every drum, taking all the guesswork out of tuning. C85 also offers significant performance gains over conventional E85, including up to 4% more power and torque. It’s also superior in terms of cooling effect, detonation protection and it includes corrosion inhibitors to fight issues with ethanol. C85 will work well in drag racing, oval track, off-road and virtually any other automotive racing application. If racers have already invested in an E85 carburetor and the upgraded fuel system it requires, C85 is the most cost-effective choice for balancing performance, cost and extended engine life.
