Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

Hey Greg Can you tell us the maximum allowable oxygen content in an Unleaded fuel for it to be legal with the DLRA please. That will help a lot in deciding what we can use. 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...

Short answer VP109 is not suitable for GAS class as it is highly oxygenated. Long answer I have compiled a table of all the fuel types that were used at Speed Week 2019, and nominated the DLRA class that they are suitable for. Note: this is just me using the specs supplied to determine class and no ...

Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

G'Day Ian, The purpose of the test is because the DLRA runs GAS and FUEL classes. Fuel used in GAS class is controlled to provide a level playing field. Remember this is only an issue if you are running in GAS class. What we are doing right now is arranging to get as many samples of different manufa...

Re: Phase out of leaded fuel by September 2019.

If you are running GAS class and you think you know what petrol you want to run, I would strongly suggest getting a sample of it that we can test with the Digitron, that is the only way you are really going to know. We can bring the Digitron to the General Meetings and conduct tests there or make so...
