I have an iron headed 528 at 13.7. I ran vp113 last season. It may have been fine but I'm going to Q16 this season.

I wasn't for sure what to run as all of my other engines have been pump gas or no more than 11.5:1 motors . In those I always ran 93 110 or a mix of 93 and 110.

Thanks

Blake ran av gas in a iron headed 514 for 12 years. Should work fine for you.

use C12 or is you want a little more kick use the 113

if you can get it the Renegade 110+ is good stuff and a lot cheaper than VP. As soon as I burn all this VP NO2 I got I will switch over to the Renegade ............dang near 200 bucks cheaper per drum than VP

You need only run enough octane to keep the engine out of detonation. 110 should be enough for what your doing.

I have had several engines on the dyno that were 93 octane friendly and lost power with 110 or av gas. But 93 pump gas has more oxygen content.

I have the one engine back together and wound up going with 112 renegade . The engine seems to idle and throttle better on the 112 than it did on Sunoco 110. Cool

We sell a lot of what VP calls Roundtrack. It is basically all the fuel left in the hose when filling barrels that gets dumped into a large tank, blended, and guaranteed to be a minimum of 107 but most of the time they say it's well over that. It has all their fuels blended in it but we don't see any inconsistency in tuning.

I sell it for $425 a barrel or $8.50 per gallon to the local circle track boys.
