Race gas!

The availability has always been the problem for me. And in So. California you just can't bring in your plastic tank and get 5 gallons because the fire dept says that it is a fire hazard. So, it is now sold in 5 gallon drums at the dealerships etc, and you end up paying for the drum too. It's expensive that way. Does Trick, VP, Unical or any others, allow you to buy in like 30 gallon containers? What is the best way to get the best deal on race gas?

wow!thats a bummer.the place i get it at you just pump it your self into your can.they have all the flavors right there.they also have unleaded race gas in different flavors.thats a seprate pump,but you can put it right into your car or bike. :)

i used to buy it in 55 gallon drums and have it delivered to my house 2 at a time.the driver from the place i got it from hassled my wife about moving them into the shed.i dont use them any more.

it saved a little money,but i dont use nearly as much as i used to.

What do you think a 55 gal drum would cost for 104+ octane? How do you get it out of the drum?

i paid right at $200 for a 55 gallon drum.at $4.00 a gallon,i saved bout $20.not sure about there.i use trick 110 which is made by phillips 66.same as b-32.

i have a manual pump for the drum.they are cheap.the place you get the fuel from should have them.

Got any contact phone numbers?

distrubutor list

i forgot they just changed the name to TRACK TEK.i use the TT111.this list should get you what you need.

heres the home page with fuel info.


Thanks Burned,

I found some T-111 pretty close to my work for $4.50 a gallon and I can just bring my can and get as much as I want. I'll probably get 10 gallons at a time, use 4-5 gallons per day and have enough for two days+ worth. I store it in a steel gas can!

Boy I wish I could say I rode enough to use 4 or 5 gallons a day!!! It would take me 6 months to use 5 gallons! Gas is not the only thing that is a premium in my life, sadly riding time is too! More power to ya Phile!!! Maybe you could describe your daily rides once in a while and let us "unfortunates" live thru you for a moment!!! (kinda like LETTERS magazine for motorcycles!) :) Andrew

Thats a great idea, I never thought of getting a 55 gallon drum for my garage.

Im using about 20 gallons a month commuting and weekend excursions.

A 55 gallon drum would last me about 3 months, not bad.

Wonder if I have a place near me that will deliver residential...?

Do you drag your tank back to the place for a refill or do they come out...?

What would you recc. for a stock setup, the on/off road TT101...?

They come out to you, and offer either 30 gallon or 55 gallon drum. It is $4.25 a gallon if you do the 30 or 55 gallons at a time.


In the California desert, one can ride 125 miles a day, or more. And a lot of it is in power robbing sand in 4th and 5th at high reves. I only get about 2 days of riding (average) per month, and average day about 75-100 miles per day. And a couple of beers afterwards.

cool!glad you found some!great stuff.smells cool too! :)

the place i get mine from is just around the corner.i just go there sat before work and get 5 gallons.i dont keep alot on hand if its not in metal cans.it deteriorates quickly form the light.i only use bout 2.5 gallons on a good day.but thats just at the track.

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!

      Currently have a 2000 drz400s work stock suspension. From my understanding this is the worst suspension the drz ever came with without even rebound damping adjustment. Therefore I'm looking for a upgrade. I'm seeing three approaches to take. First being a newer year s model suspension with dampening adjustment. A SM model USD forks and triple tree or some USD forks and triple tree from a rmz. So if you were going to upgrade what direction would you go. I currently ride off-road mostly but I do have some 17s for on road with as well so have to keep that in mind. Thanks
