Product Description

When blended to the proper ratio, RACE GASTM can take your ordinary pump gasoline and transform it into high octane, high energy, track grade racing fuel. RACE GASTM will keep you from ever running out of racing fuel.

In working with several chemists and our suppliers we came up with the blend that became RACE GASTM.  When we had a third party laboratory run the ASTM D 2699 and 2700 tests, Race Gas blended with pump gas produced results as good as racing with regularly distilled 100 octane gasoline, See the test results. This blend will improve the quality of regular "pump gas" and make it suitable for racing - why? Because RACE GASTM adds back in the key elements of racing fuel - hydrocarbons, oxygenates, and organometallic compounds:

  • Fuel Hydrocarbons: Fuel Hydrocarbons are compounds that contain both Carbon and Hydrogen that, when burned, produce water (H2O) or Carbon Dioxide (CO2).  Saturated Hydrocarbons have a high octane rating and carry additional carbon atoms which produce more energy when burned. They also produce a synergistic effect when used with certain organometallic compounds to product higher octane ratings than if they are used by themselves.

 

  • Oxygenates are one of the most misunderstood compounds in gasoline. While many have heard of the negative effects of oxygenates like Ethanol and Methanol not all oxygenates are created equal. Oxygenates play a very important role in high octane gasoline. Like the name suggests oxygenates add oxygen to gasoline. As we all know our engines need oxygen to burn fuel. By adding an oxygenate to RACE GASTM we are adding that crucial oxygen to the fuel which, in turn, allows the engine to burn fuel more completely thereby taking advantage of the additional carbon atoms added by the fuel hydrocarbons.  The net result is more horsepower! The oxygenates that are used in Race Gas are not derived from alcohol like methanol and ethanol and therefor do not damage fuel system and engine components like these oxygenates do.

 

  • Organometallic compounds are added to gasoline to increase the octane of the fuel. Up until recently Tetra Ethyl Lead was used in gasoline for this purpose. In addition lead was used as a lubricant on older engines that didn't have hardened valve seats.  The problem with lead in gasoline, (other than the environmental effects), was the fact that scavenger compounds needed to be added to gas in order to keep the lead from creating deposits on pistons and cylinder heads. When the EPA banned lead in fuel refiners turned to other metallic compounds like Manganese, Iron, Nickel and Magnesium. All of these different compounds have their pros and cons. We believe that Manganese has the best overall effect on octane and the best synergistic effect with the other compounds  in Race Gas. As a result Race Gas contains high quality Methylcyclopentadienyl Manganese Tricarbonyl or MMT.

Moreover, we know that RACE GASTM is safe for cars even under the most demanding conditions. We have burned RACE GASTM in everything from a 944 Turbo race car, a modified Audi TT, a Hemi Magnum, a Hemi Challenger, and modified VW R32, a Corvette and many other cars. All showed increases in power, throttle response and torque, (you can see the dyno test results of many of these cars on our test results page at www.race-gas.com).

 Try a can of RACE GASTM and you'll find what everyone is finding - that RACE GASTM really works, turning ordinary pump fuel into RACE GASTM.

  1. Air Cooled + High Compression + Florida Heat + RACE GAS = Problem Solved! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2017

    I ride a high compression, air cooled, big bore Buell 1250 in Southern Florida. Ever since I built my bike 6 years ago, I have had a detonation issue, even with a professional dyno tune. Three months of the year the bike runs great but the other 9 I have lower RPM pinging issues. In the past I have tried parts store “octane boosters” with mixed results. Mixed being some improvement until the outside temp heads north of 90 degrees, but in South Florida that’s about 7 or so months of the year. So no solution, nor the enjoyment I get from a ride in the cooler 3 months of the year.
    I recently purchased two cans of Race Gas to give it a try since the temps in South Florida are north of 80 degrees. I decided to go higher in the octane mix (99) than I probably needed and adjust downward over time. I recently took a slow ride along the coast in stop and go traffic, which in the past was not a happy experience for my Buell or me. Typically I had “pinging” when pulling away from a stop light and had to maintain 3000 RPM to keep detonation at bay, which raised the air cooled head temps and in a vicious cycle raised the opportunity for detonation. With the 99 octane mix all the issues disappeared and my Buell was happy to chug along in second or third gear where in the past I had to stay in first or second. Also in the past, a full tach sweep to 7500 RPM was tricky with pinging down low and the ignition pulling timing out up higher in the range. On Race Gas I get FULL power from off idle to redline in all gears!!!!
    I can honestly say that Race Gas performs as promised and as I dial in my mixture, the costs per gallon will drop.
    I do have one suggestion to Race Gas.
    Please make available a see through plastic 12 OZ container with half ounce increments molded into the container that will hold their product long term and also has a top on it that will stay sealed on its’ side or even upside down.
    Such a product would allow me to ride more and longer distances since I can only ride around 100 miles per tank, and prefer not limiting my rides now that I know I have a solution to my detonation issues. I am having trouble finding a container of the right size to fit in the waist pack I carry when I ride, since I have no “bags”. I would gladly purchase an empty storage container or two from the Race Gas people if they made one available that solves my issues, and I am sure other motorcyclists or high performance street car owners would enjoy having a smaller container to carry Race Gas in that has measured increments on it.
    Thanks for making a GREAT product!!!


  2. High compression+ Air Cooled+ Florida Heat = NO longer a problem 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Jun 2017

    I have a high compression Buell with a big bore Harley Sportster based 1250 engine. In the few months of cooler temps we have here in Southern Florida, my bike rand great, but in the other 10 months I had an issue with pinging at lower RPM and load. I would lose the performance I had built into the engine and the ride-ability too. I had tried other so called octane boosters with mixed results, being improvement during some of the not so hot months but no improvement after the air temps go north of 90 degrees!!!
    I tested Race gas with a 99 Octane mixture on a 95 degree day with a low speed ride up the coast. Normally I would need to keep the RPM's up to keep the detonation at bay, but with Race Gas my Buell gladly ran perfectly at any RPM, and no more pinging when leaving a stop either.
    Race Gas performed as described and I could not be happier!!!

    My only suggestion is this; we motorcyclists like to ride and I can only go about 100 miles on a tank of fuel so my ride distance will need to be kept to local routes. It would be nice to be able to purchase a suitable (resealable, able to be stored on it's side without leaking, suitable to hold Race Fuel without degrading over time) empty 12 OZ container so I can take a few tankfulls on the road with . Not all motorcycles have bags so this container needs to be able to be thrown into a back pack or similar.

    Thanks for making a great product!!!


  3. real octane booster 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Mar 2016

    Excellent product that really works as claimed ! Happy to see the new can design


  4. Saves Money 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Mar 2016

    I ride a hot rod Harley with 10-1compression&a lot of timing that runs good on 100 octane but is pricey. I can get it in town but when I'm on the road, well good luck. I found that with a little experimentation by mixing pump gas & race-gas I really didn't need 100 octane. 96 is all the octane I need to stop the detonation. So in the long run I'm saving a substantial amount of money by not having to pay for racing fuel. I suggest that you do the same.


  5. Works Great! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Sep 2015

    I used race gas in many engines low and high compression and it works very well, especially in the lower compression engines with lots of timing. I use this regularly in my supercharged 3800 and it loves it. I wish they'd change the can design, its a pain to pour without spilling some.


  6. Did what it said it would do 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2015

    Used this product to make 101 fuel to run my 11 to 1 compression with nitrous big block at the track and experienced no problems do to fuel and saved about $2 a gallon in the process.


  7. Works great! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2015

    I have used this stuff in three different engines in three different cars and they all ran better when I used race gas. 4 stars because the tin can is a pain to open and you're almost guaranteed to spill some while pouring into a funnel


  8. Awesome 5 Star Review
