300th Post/ 103 Octane VP gas
I just stopped in at the local VP gas distibutor and picked up 5 gallons of 103 octane unleaded. I don't know how much it will help with a weak fuel pump, but I am going to give it a try. I wanted to get 3 gallons of 110, but 103 is all they had on hand and the minimum I could buy was 5 gallons for a whopping $5.84 a gallon (I thought $1.79 was expensive for 93 octane).
Has anyone ever tried this stuff? It is supposed to be from VP'* top line. It really stinks is all I can tell so far (I have it in a 5 gallon jug waiting for me to put it in when I leave for the track -55 miles).
If my car was running like a top how much would I likely gain over the pump 93 octane? 1-2 tenths of a second and 1 mph?
Also, I picked up to 12 oz bottles of octane boost. Should I add those into it at the same time or just wait until I fill up again?
I also am putting the GM performance exhaust on and am hoping for better times than my last trip, but expect about the same.
I am going to the track better prepared this time, but then the fuel pump will be my main problem for low e.t.'* and high MPH trap speeds.
P.*. I'll get some pics taken of my time slips for the proof of my times (hoping for better than last time out -10.14 @ 73, but I don't expect to get better than that due to the weak fuel pump even though the car will be stripped down and have more performance mods)
Thanks in advance,
