Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

I don't know why this is all so hard, all of a sudden, Nothing has changed about the definition of fuels in the rule book for years. "The DLRA defines gasoline to contain no nitrogen bearing compounds, no propylene oxide, no ethylene oxide, and no more than 10% methanol." The only thing that is new ...

Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

I'm not interested in the club becoming a supplier of all types of gasoline. (Too much like hard work)(and nobody to do it)

But I am interested in the club providing a standardised gasoline or petrol that can be used in GAS class engines.
This is what I'm talking about when I say "event gasoline "

Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

I think it's a big mistake to deviate too far from what is basically a universal rule amongst all the LSR organisations.

Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

An event gas is something we have been wanting to do for some time for lots of reasons, the least being the transporting of large amounts of petrol by entrants over that road.

Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

Please have a look at this chart.
I've done the best I can to determine classes for the fuels listed.
I'm still trying to get access to the VP range of fuels do that we can test them and get readings using our testing methods

Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

Regards Mal G'Day Mal, To be safe, I'd say none, if it has some I'd be getting it tested. It's not necessarily just the oxygen...
