What is VP ? can you explain, what is used for the highest power?

JT

VP racing fuel. Between MR1, U4, and Pump gas, the MR1 had the highest hp and torque output. I spoke to a VP fuel representative and he said the MR9 will give 2-3 hp more than the MR1.

MR9 also costs 2X of the U4--close to $100 for 5 gal if I remember correctly

Wow. You almost have to insure that stuff.

I would get fire and theft put on it.

Isn't the difference between U4 and the MR fuels such that the U4 is just oxygenated while the MR fuels actually have high octane levels? :idunno:

Actually, the MRs are lower octane and more oxygen (and a bit of Nitro to boot).

From VP's site:
U4
Used in stock and modified 4-stroke applications, as well as stock 2-strokes. Makes up to 6% more power than pump gas and any basic nonoxygenated racing fuel. Passes fuel rules for AMA amateur racing and is also perfect for club level racing, CCS, WERA and AFM.

• Color: Clear
• Motor Octane: 92
• Specific Gravity: .718 at 60° F

MR1
Recommended for 4-stroke applications where octane requirements are fairly low, e.g. Supersport, Superbike, Formula Extreme and MX. Delivers up to 6% more power than pump gas and any basic nonoxygenated racing fuel. Clean burning - leaves intake and exhaust valves virtually free of deposits for maximum airflow and performance from start to finish. Can be mixed with MR8 to raise octane level for specific applications. AMA legal except Supercross and Outdoor Nationals.

• Color: Clear
• Oxygenated: Yes
• Motor Octane: 90
• Specific Gravity: .749 at 60° F

MR9
VP's newest fuel for 4-stroke applications that can tolerate lower octane values. Makes up to 2-3% more power than VP's MR1, meaning nothing on the market makes more power than MR9! AMA legal except Supercross and Outdoor Nationals.

• Color: Clear
• Oxygenated: Yes
• Motor Octane: 87
• Specific Gravity: .718 at 60° F
I just paid 51.00 for 5 gallons of U4 and I saved a bunch of money on my car insurance.
