What's the difference between Q16 and C16?

Whereas C16 is designed for engines with a compression ratio of up to 17:1, X16 is more for engines with up to a 16:1 compression ratio. This is the economically-priced race fuel, and it has an octane rating

octane rating
The most common type of octane rating worldwide is the Research Octane Number (RON). RON is determined by running the fuel in a test engine with a variable compression ratio under controlled conditions, and comparing the results with those for mixtures of iso-octane and n-heptane.

What is C16 fuel used for?

C16 fuel has an established performance standard that still exists today. We formulate it for drag racing applications. Use it in turbocharged engines, supercharged engines, and nitrous applications with CRs up to 17:1. C16 is one of VP's most popular blends.

What octane is Q16?

Octane – Q16 has a motor octane of 116, virtually the same as VP's C16, but its resistance to detonation is even better—6 to 8 numbers higher than its standard ASTM rating—due to the increased fuel flow.

What is Q16 fuel?

Q16 is primarily used in intercooled, forced induction drag race applications and is often regarded as the best oxygenated, leaded fuel VP produces. Highly oxygenated, requiring a 4-6% increase in fuel flow, which will make 3-5% more power than competitive 116 octane fuels.

What is the best fuel to run with nitrous?

Use of a premium type leaded or unleaded fuel of 92, or greater, octane is recommended for most applications. Most Ny-Trex performance systems are designed for use with service station pump gas. However, when higher compression or higher horsepower levels are used, a racing fuel of 100 octane, or more, must be used.

Is C16 corrosive?

C16 can be used for daily driving but it's a pretty expensive way of getting around. It also is heavily leaded and can cause corrosion in the engine and exhaust system if the engine is left for long periods of time.

Can you put racing fuel in a regular car?

Trying to put regular racing gasoline, pure methanol, nitromethane, or leading racing fuel will completely ruin your engine. The same goes for a car tuned to use 87 octane gasoline. You cannot put anything other than gasoline in that car, or you risk causing costly damage to your engine.

Does oxygenated fuel make more power?

Oxygenated fuel means burning more fuel to get more power which, in turn, means less mileage from a tank of fuel.

What is M5 race fuel?

M5 is simply the best performing methanol on the market. With its upgraded combustion additives, M5 will make more power than standard methanol, while offering the same or better protection against detonation.

What is the highest octane race fuel?

104 Octane Fuels

PSC's 104 Octane Fuel is the highest octane rated unleaded racing fuel that we offer making it a popular choice for racers looking for a high-octane gas in an unleaded form. This fuel provides peak performance due to the higher level of oxygenates that you can't get from regular pump gas.

What is C16?

C16 is the most commonly used form of timber, it can be used in many different applications and is the most cost effective option. C16 timbers are kiln dried to minimise the amount of moisture in the wood.

What is better E85 or race gas?

E85 fuel can give you a significant boost in power and torque without breaking the bank for racing fuels. It has a base octane rating of 105 and has the bonus of added cooling properties that add even more knock resistance than racing fuels with the same rating.
