Race Gas.

Recommended Posts

VP Ultimate 4 leaded, which, incidently, is 92 octane (because that's enough), will add about 1/2 hp to your 250F. Doesn't affect reliability negatively except for the strain caused by the extra power. OTOH, the lead may help your valves last a little longer. Worth it? You decide.

I like running the higher octane in a light mix 1 HO / 4 Pumped.... Especially enjoy the smell of the race mix in the morning... smells like FUN!!! :) I haven't had any parts issues from it either... :)

The best way to decide if race gas is worth the cost is to put it in your tank and try it. For me, the 110 octane stuff makes my CRF 450 run so much better that it is worth the cost.
